The size of the conservatory was not great but was extremely well presented. Custom hand blown oversize flowers were mixed within the natural flora and fauna and nicely presented. Cafeteria food was good. Nice time...don;t miss it!!!!

This is a wonderful place that takes you out of day to day life and connects you with the beauty and wonder of magnificent plants. Butterflies are also in abundance. Don't forget to stop in the cafe for lovely food and drinks.

This building is a gem; the collection is very good.We were there during a display of beautiful large glass "flowers" that were amazing!! Heard the place is magical at Christmas. The butterfly house is delightful as the butterflies flit around you! Really enjoyable few hours.

I was there at Christmas and the entire place, in and out, was beautifully decorated. There is a calm that comes over you in a place like this. Surrounded by very well-maintained and amazingly arranged plants and trees or so many varieties is just breath-taking.
