I really loved this place, every exhibit is inside the green house, so chill outside does not bother you. I would recommend 2-3 hours to absorb most of what in offering, great place indeed....

It's a beautiful collection of plants, trees and flowers that's well organized and laid out. Having said that it takes 30' to see everything at a slow pace so $12.00 seems like too high of a price of admission.

Enjoyed a rainy day inside the beautiful botanical gardens. Great day with great friends. I took many photos of the flowers on my phone and had canvas pictures made. The colors are gorgeous ands they turned out beautiful.

We love to visit greenhouses and conservatories, especially when the weather isn't perfect for outdoor gardening. This was an excellent example of a well done one, with good flow through its beautiful collections and displays. We appreciated getting free admission as AHS members. We took...More

A great spot for an indoor activity and a wander around a garden. This conservatory is so beautiful. We were there at sunset for a function and had a most enjoyable evening. The plants are well laid out and well labelled.

Visited when there was a light show. It was a very nice experience. It could do with more plants, although I think in the summer it's even better.
