The place is beautiful, if you are going by bus you should plan your route since is a bit too far from the nearest bus stop and you probably have to walk a long distance through snow, once inside the place is beautiful, make sure you bring your camera since there are a lot of plants an beautiful trees, the...

The buildings themselves were the highlight of this visit. Each of the pyramids have plants of a different climate, and everything's labeled. Nice school field-trip venue. Good place for locals to make a tradition for holiday visits. If you absolutely love seeing plants and flowers, you'll probably like the Muttart Conservatory.But there's nothing especially "Edmonton" about the Muttart Conservatory. Most... More

We have visited here a few years ago. This time it was one of the photo venues for our daughters wedding. What a wonderful spot and such great people who looked after us. Our daughter had booked the Muttart from 1:00 to 2:30 for mostly family photos since it would be warm and had a big enough area for all... More

We love the Muttart Convervatory, especially at Christmas. It is a wonderful attraction to visit throughout the year. There is also a lovely park to walk through along the riverbanks. A great attraction for tourists and locals. Charmaine Hammond Team Toby's PAWS Across Canada tour www.TheOriginalTeamToby.com

I've gone to the Muttart Conservatory a few times. I really enjoy it each and every time I go. They often have an appropriate themed pyramid and sometimes crafts for kids. We have a 3 year old, however, and it just doesn't grab his attention, so we can't spend the time the pyramids need to appreciate them. This is definitely... More

When you visit Edmonton, seeing pyramids are a bit curious of a feature to see near the river valley. Each is a green house with different temperature zones and different plants that thrive in that zone. It pays to call ahead to see if a wedding is going on, as part of it is rented out as a beautiful backdrop... More

We are to be in Edmonton this weekend and tripadvisor sent us a reminder. In the reminder email there were links to attractions and restaurants. I thought great, I want to look up my favorite place in Edmonton, the three pyramid buildings, known as the Muttart Conservatory. But, in tripadvisor, it seems you can't actually find the place. I find... More

I went there because it was highly recommended on the BCAA book, and I was curious about the pyramid and the changing light. However, I didn't see the changing light. There were 4 pyramids there, and the plants are inside the pyramids. I joined the tour to the 2 pyramids out of 3 because I was late due to that... More
