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.

One of Edmonton's few redeeming qualities. Visiting the Muttart is like being transported to another, more pleasant region and climate. Very well maintained gardens; worth a membership if you find the city intolerable.

A wonderful place to visit all year long! It never gets old. Great place to take the family as something to do on the weekend. Kids love to see all of the indoor greenery! The exhibits are always immaculate, and they change often. One of the best attractions in Edmonton.

The Muttart is a set of 4 glass pyramids with a different climate in each pyramid. It is neat to walk through the desert setting and then the wetlands, etc. Also a good place to have a wedding.

There are few things nicer in the middle of a harsh winter in Edmonton than heading into the greenhouse pyramids of the Muttart Conservatory to warm up all the way to the middle of your bones and to breath some moist air. While you are there, definitely co to the excellent cafe located within the centre.

Went here on a cold morning, was pleasantly surprised,at the number of plants and the displays. The Christmas display with all the poinsettias was stunning. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and nothing was to much for them. A great day out the gardening freaks!!!

Actually there are 4 Pyramids, one for each environment. On a cold winter's day you can sit in the tropics. Good food too. Just watch out for the newly weds doing the photo shoots!

The floral and plant displays here are truly beautiful! The work and care in every detail is more than evident. Nice little gift shop, helpful staff. Had a wonderful brunch in their restaurant that was incredibly good. Loved it, will definitely be going back!

Ok so I'm biased, I used to have a leisure access pass and go here all the time in summer. I really do love everything about it. The trips are always very educational and I love plants. Especially the succulents.
