National Bonsai and Penjing Museum

The National Bonsai and Penjing Museum, established in 1976, is the most comprehensive of it's kind in North America. This National treasure is located on the 446-acre campus of the US National Arboretum in Washington, DC, and represents a private/public partnership between the Arboretum and the National Bonsai Foundation. "This is the first true bonsai museum anywhere in the world, and it's also the largest and most comprehensive one in the western world," says arboretum director Tom Elias. "We have the finest collection of mature bonsai outside of Japan."
The National Bonsai and Penjing Museum is undoubtedly one of Washington's key attractions for plant lovers. Now, more than 200,000 people annually visit the museum's collection of 150 plants located in three pavilion houses.

Metrobus Information: On weekends and holidays except December 25, direct shuttle service is available from Union Station on the X6 Metrobus.
