Nice displays and well maintained but very small. Cafe as you enter served tasty sandwiches, seemed a lot of people just visited for those.

This is such a haven in the winter, and just fabulous in the summer! We were there to see the display pyramid featuring A Journey to Middle Earth. As always, all the pyramids were beautiful, and all the ideas and plant choices very inventive.

Such a beautiful, relaxing place to spend some quiet time. I come here by myself to get away from the business of my life and to enjoy some much-needed warmth and greenery during our long winters. I have also brought my grown kids here and my very young grandkids when there is a special event at the Conservatory, such as... More

the care and display of the different biomes was very informative and interesting, gorgeous to look at. The tour guide was slightly annoying, but you can always look around on your own. Well worth a trip.

The Muttart is a nice short-visit place to go for a lunch date or as one stop on a day of visiting some of Edmonton's smaller attractions. Plenty of parking, a nice park area surrounding it - perfect for a picnic, and if you're into flowers, you won't be disappointed. It's also nice that they rotate the attractions in their... More

Hobbit Exhibit was cool but a bit small for the space it occupied. The other 3 Pyramids had many delightful planets and trees to see. Nice to see the names of each plant also. Under $50 for a family of up to 7 very nice. Everyone enjoyed the experience.

Beautiful and fairly small. Only need about an hour or so here depending on how into botany you are. 3 pavilion (Arid, Tropical, Temperate) are year round. 4th pyramid is a Feature pavilion used for weddings or special exhibits (currently now there is a Shire/Hobbiton themed one). Beautiful place for photos, cute little place to sit and take it all... More

Nice place for a couple of hours visit in and around the conservatory. Also a good place to have a picnic outside as there are tables.

I love that they always have a feature biome. This one was a whimsical Hobbit enclosure. I try to get here once a year just because it's so relaxing to walk through. I also love their yearly plant sale. A fantastic family outing for any weather and the grounds are a good place to have a picnic.
