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.
