Like, I've spent so many times around Muttart Conservatory but I have never entered inside. Reading something about Corpse Bride flower, we went to see it, but missed it for a day. Which wasn't bad at all. Four glass pyramids, each representing different vegetation. Beautiful and worth seeing. Conservatory itself offers cafés, coffee shop, souvenir shop and I believe professional... More

I walked there on a sunny day from downtown. It was bit difficult to walk to from downtown due to a lack of signage.. However, I was a rewarded t with a visit to 4 different biomes, each in its own glass pyramid After winter in Alaska, it felt good to wander by the orchids..

All the Pyramids were so nice to visit. The Tropical one is my favourite. so many Orchids and Rhododendrons in bloom. The Arid Pyramid is always a interesting place to visit. The different types of cactus, and the huge Crown of Thorns so nice to see in bloom. The Featured Pyramid all decked out in a Persian theme, with Hookahs... More

I've visited conservatories in several cities, and I always find them to be oases of calm and tranquility. This one has four separate biomes, each in its own glass pyramid. These biomes are: tropical, temperate, arid, and feature. While in these we could see the snow outside, which added a magical quality to the experience. The feature pyramid this time... More

Went as a couple to check out the conservatory, what a nice place to get out and see some colour on a miserable day. Took us about 2 hours to walk around the 4 pyramids. Corpse flower was just starting to bloom so while impressive, seems we just missed the "big event". still well worth the money.

Similar to the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, BC, however, Muttart is split into separate pyramids each featuring a unique biome. Give yourself 1-2 hours to see everything. Late spring, early summer is likely a better time to go when everything is leafed out and/or in bloom, but still a great place to visit.

Always interesting to visit the Muttart at any time of year. We ususally try to get there in the Spring and again during winter. The hydrangeas arer one of my fave dispalys. Lunch at the restaurant is always deliscious!

I often go to this lovely facility when I am in Edmonton. It never cease to make me happy. Walk around the pyramids at your own pace. Take pictures in peace. I love to see the plants grow in the permanent exhibit and to discover what is new in the temporary one.
