We were not impressed by the displays, but it was nice to walk through on a chilly April day. I would not say this is a "must see."

The garden has done a nice job of creating floral exhibits from a variety of climates. The butterfly conservatory was a treat.

Nice place to spend 1-2 hours. Walkways easily move from greenhouse to greenhouse. A number of the plants were in bloom - including orchids. There were owls from a rescue group on site - which made the visit even better! Admission is reasonable and in...More

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 have lived in the area quite a while and had never been here. A sunny, but cold Sunday and we wanted to walk someplace other than a mall. It just did not live up to the hype that we were expecting. We were in...More

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
