The Brooklyn Botanic Garden received a special honor from the White House this week.
It was among 10 cultural institutions to receive the National Medal for Museum and Library Service from First Lady Michelle Obama.
Each year, the program recognizes learning institutions that engage their communities through innovative programs.
"As any mom with kids would tell you, on a rainy weekend afternoon you are a welcome haven where kids can learn and explore. And really the work to engage and empower our young people is some of the most important work that all of you do," the first lady said.
The garden was founded in 1910 as one of the first urban botanic gardens in the world.
Right now it's celebrating the annual cherry blossom season.
