Group admissions have been postponed for the time being. Please check back.

The Wildflower Center welcomes groups of 10 or fewer to book in advance and receive discounted admissions. These self-guided visits are a great option for senior groups, small classes (note that UT Austin students, faculty and staff get in for free) and social clubs.

Size: 10 person maximum
Cost: $1 off regular admission per person
Availability: Daily from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


Two weeks’ advance notice is required.

The final price for your group will be confirmed once you’ve booked your visit.

Payments are accepted at the Admissions Kiosk when you arrive (we do not accept payment online at this time).

All rates include your admission fee. Coupons and member benefits (free admission) do not apply to group visits.

Cancellation and No-show Policy

Cancellations should be made no less than 10 business days before the reserved date to avoid the $30 cancellation fee. Groups that do not show up for the reserved date will be assessed a $30 no-show fee. Fee must be paid within 30 days of cancellation or no-show date.


If for some reason you must reschedule your visit, please contact us as soon as possible and preferably no later than 10 business days before your scheduled visit.

Box Lunches

Our Wildflower Café offers a variety of sandwiches, snacks and beverages and has first-come, first-served seating for about 30 guests indoors and 40 outdoors. We also have shaded picnic areas where groups can enjoy their own food or box lunches from the Café.

Groups can arrange to have box lunches prepared two weeks in advance of their arrival by contacting Primizie Catering at 512.782.2373 ext. 0101 or [email protected].
