Four pyramids located in the river valley, right across from downtown. This is an indoor garden, where each pyramid is climatized according to the flora/plants display. They go from dry (arid) climate, with a variety of cactus, to a tropical climate that has lush vegetation, to a temperate one and the fourth one offers temporary displays they change through the...

The four pyramids containing all these different kinds of flowers and plant were beautiful. I had a great time looking at all these flowers I have never seen before. There was one pyramid that was so humid my camera glass fogged up when I was snapping pictures. It is understandable because those certain plants needed the humidity, but I had... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here taking in the beauty of the flowers, greenery and wonderful designs in each of the four pyramids. It was very relaxing and energizing. Well worth the trip any time of the year!

I think it was $12 a person. There open late on Thursdays, so we took advantage. Was not very many people there. It only took maybe 1/2 an hour to walk through. We did two laps to make it more worthwhile Staff seemed frantic and not very keen to answer our simple questions (where's the entrance?). It was pretty in... More

This place is amazing! We went with a group from university and well, I was impressed. The staff was really helpful and gave us a wonderful tour. Their knowledge about the plants and the ecosystems they have is great. So, if you want to escape from the winter a little bit and enjoy different climates and a pleasant place, go!... More

I cannot say enough about this incredible place. Four pyramids each containing a unique garden experience. Chrysanthemums were the specialty that day but my favorite is still the tropical rain forest with the orchids abounding. The fig tree was also great though

Edmonton is a cold city. At minus 30 and even colder there are few solutions that work for making your life feel more tropical. This is where the mutt art comes in. Although small, the four pavilions are wonderfully laid out describing different regions if the world. Want to beat the cold, head here. If you're going to visit a... More

Muttart Conservatory is a hidden gem in Edmonton! The pyramids have some beautiful and interesting plants growing in them, with Arid, Tropical and Temperate Climates. See pineapples, papaya, figs, palms, and plants with gigantic leaves. Some of the plants in the desert (arid) pyramid are very very old. The feature pyramid changes every season; tulips and daffodils in the Spring,... More
