Welcome to BRIT. Explore with Us!

Engage with BRIT as you explore our campus. Through our herbarium, exhibits highlighting our worldwide research projects, exhibitions of botanically centered visual art, and library and special collections, visitors can connect with and explore all that make BRIT unique. Adding to our role as a conservation leader of Fort Worth is our sustainable building, which is LEED platinum certified. We are also proud to offer self-guided tours of our three distinctive galleries: art, library collections, and research. These three areas each highlight a special area of the Institute.

Self-Guided Tours

Enjoy exploring at your own pace! Our touring app, Encurate, is always available for use on your mobile phone. Download the app and learn all about BRIT with an interactive map and self-guided tour options. If you prefer a low-technology experience, simply walk the grounds to experience our pocket prairie, pollinator pathway, special exhibitions, and unique sustainable building features like our bamboo ceilings, sinker cypress wall, living roof, and more.

Self-guided tours are available during regular working hours, Monday  Friday (10 a.m.  4 p.m.). Stop by our Atrium to pick up a free guide from the Welcome Center.
