The American Orchid Society Visitors Center and Botanical Garden was a 3.5 acres (1.4 ha) botanical garden specializing in orchids and home to the American Orchid Society. The facility was located in Morikami Park at 16700 AOS Lane, Delray Beach, Florida, USA, and included a 4,000 square foot (370 m²) greenhouse open to the public.[1]

In late 2011 the American Orchid Society sold the visitor center and garden and in 2012 moved the orchid collection to the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in the Miami metropolitan area.[2]
