The Durfee Conservatory
Durfee Conservatory


The Durfee Conservatory, located on the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus and established in 1867, has a rich history.

Tucked away in a hustling and bustling campus of over 25,000 students, this greenhouse complex is a sanctuary of calm and serenity. In sunny weather students sit and read in the outside gardens. In the biting cold of winter, many take a few minutes on their way to class, to warm themselves in the ‘rainforest’ room.


The Conservatory will be closed on Wednesday, November 25th and Thursday, November 26th. The Conservatory will open at 12:00 on Friday, November 27th.
