Fortlandia Returns!

Opens Oct. 5, 2019

The forts were so popular last year that we are bringing Fortlandia back. Explore a new exhibition of 10 forts custom designed and built by local architects, designers and artists for the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. Stop and build your own fort at Fort Build too.

These creative spaces will transport you to imaginary worlds and spark an appreciation for art and nature -- and the curious, wonderful ways in which they intersect. Your secret hideout awaits!

Entry is included with regular admission; admission is always free for members.
