Beautiful place. You can see all these different types of plants and flowers according to their biomes. The building itself is worth a visit. The pyramids are on of Edmonton's postscards.

I am a little surprised this is so popular. Plants seem to be arranged in odd ways. I am glad I am not a pollinating insect or bird. It would be too confusing.

I liked the arrangements of all the different species of plants. How they made all the different plants survive from their normal habitats with a controlled climate system. The layout was well done

We enjoyed the Conservatory so much. Spent time looking at all the plants and flowers and so appreciated the well marked descriptions of the plants. We are in Edmonton fairly frequently and am so sorry we had not visited here before. Think we will probably get an annual membership we enjoyed it so much. The four pyramids are so unique... More

On a cool winter's day a visit to the Muttart Conservatory is a must. Having never been before, I could see how a person would want to visit multiple times during different seasons. The rotating garden was done for the Chinese New Year when I was visited. The gardens were not only beautiful but allowed for some quiet reflective time.... More

Pretty cool experience, especially during a time when nothing is growing outside, and that's a long period in Edmonton! Will visit again next time i'm in Edmonton!
