Marin Art and Garden Center

 is a special gathering place that celebrates learning, growth and the beauty of nature; a place to be inspired, educated and entertained—or to just be.
The grounds are open sunrise to sunset, seven days a week; the parking lot is open from 9 am–5 pm.
Our office is closed at this time.

Tree Dahlias are a Mesoamerican marvel
