Just missed the Orchid Mania but the baobab trees were a sight. Lucky enough to be there after 2 pm for the daily butterfly release in the Glasshouse. Grateful for the brief reprieve from the cold and happy to contribute to the cause.

I was disappointed. Not worth the price, especially with the number of other options on University Circle. We didn't walk the grounds in the cold and snow and the indoors exhibits were not very large.

Really is an orchid mania. Orchids of all kinds are everywhere throughout the indoor gardens. Kent state clothing design students created outfits inspired by flowers to add to the mania.

Always check the website before you visit so that you know what to expect. The inside gardens are open year round and many times they have special shows happening, even during winter!
