My 4 year old daughter loved it.

Lots of interesting plants. Nice location and building. My four year old loved it. Lots of parking. The café is over priced and not made for kids.

My mother and I make this a must do experience for every mothers day. You can take your time in every pavilion, and I suggest, don't rush. There is so much to see, you can easily miss something the first time through. If you don't want to encounter groups of students etc. maybe call ahead to make sure you will... More

Rainy, overcast day and we decided to check out the conservatory. Glad we did! The revolving exhibit was about The Hobbit. Wonderful displays of the dragon, Gandalf, and the hobbit home surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers.

This was recommended by several friends in the area. The pyramids made it look very large from the outside, but once inside it's not really that big. The exhibit is divided into four sections: Temperate, Tropical, Arid, and "Feature". We don't know what "Feature" is, because it was closed while we were there, apparently to change the exhibit. If you're... More

The Muttart Conservatory has a lot going for it; however, I wonder if these types of facilities are just not my thing (felt much the same after a recent visit to the Botanical Building and Lily Pond in San Diego's Balboa Park). I enjoy outside gardens much more. That said, I gave it a shot. Used the scanner technology to... More

I was amazed by the beautiful glass pyramids and was anticipating something really special inside of them. The glass atriums are actually very small and the plants inside were surprisingly very poorly groomed. Flowers were fading and the displays badly in need of changing out. Plants had burned and ragged leaves, and were poorly maintained in general. "Art" among the... More

This place is wonderful to go to especially around valentines day when the featured Dom is filled with red and pink. Go early in the day to avoid children. There are four different climates so take the time to enjoy them all. The one that is similar to Edmonton has stuff you would not expect to see. The Desert one... More

The Muttart Conservatory is the perfect place to go and reflect on Mother Nature. The four pyramids reflect different parts of the world with one being a "feature" display. Some really unique species of plants/trees. Just a really relaxing experience.

The Muttart is the perfect place to visit in the middle of winter, this is my favourite part at least. You can go from -40 to a tropical forest where it is warm and humid with many pleasantly fragrant plants! It really helps take the edge off of winter!
