The Oswald Visitor Center includes a casual cafe and outdoor terrace, Gift and Garden Store, art galleries and Great Hall for many seasonal displays and events. The adjacent Snyder Building includes the Andersen Horticultural Library and a conservatory. Venues and meeting spaces available for gatherings, business meetings and weddings - large and small. Open year-round. The Arb ranks among the Top Botanical Gardens by USA Today Readers Choice (#1 in 2019 and 2017) and has received level IV accreditation through ArbNet, an international community of arboreta.
