Norfolk is quite dull, so to find this treasure was a great surprise. One could spend here tw- to three hours in a good weather. It was lightly raining, but still I couldn't avoid my curiousity to walk more.

This beautiful garden offers much to enjoy. The highlight (for me) is the Butterfly House and Garden. You can learn much about the 20+ species of Virginia Butterflies and probably see a live specimen of each in the house itself.

My friend and I spent hours at the Gardens today..fresh air, sunshine and fairly warm. Not really crowded. The Rose Garden was just beautiful! Lived in Newport News for ever, but this was my first time here...won't be my last! Tram ride was awesome, too!

We've visited NBG several times, in different seasons. It's always beautiful, restful and interesting. Right next to the airport, it's also fun to watch airplane traffic from the rise. Beautifully landscaped, rich in history, architecturally designed for ease of walking and lovely viewing. We look...More

Yes, there is still lots to see even though it's not peak season. Right now the roses are in full bloom, but there's always something wonderful in the gardens, no matter the season. Hope this helps.
