This place saved my sanity over the cold winter months, so lovely to be able to walk through a warm, humid, orchid-filled garden! I went a few times, love watch the plants change as it got closer to Spring. Good value for the price and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. The cafe is attached is also... More

This is better than a park as it is open all year round and has different habitats to view. There are also exotic butterflies. There is always something new in the display pyramid and something flowering in the other ones. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Edmonton's river valley this is the city's jewel in the crown in all seasons.

It is a great place to relax and unwind after a week of work. it is situated on the middle of the park just at the outskirt of downtown Edmonton. The park is a good place to have picnic with family and friends. Upon entrance to the conservatory, there are tables and chairs for people who would like to enjoy... More

Whoever thought of this, its totally genius! Awesome place for photos…well, you actually dont have to enter the conservatory (there's a fee for it). What is beautiful is the surrounding. Great place for photos of the glass pyramids and if you actually climb the hills surrounding it, you get awesome skyline view of the pyramids and edmonton city.

When we were at the conservatory one pyramid was closed for reno, but that is an opportunity for us to return. This facility is very well organized and well put together, many exhibits each labeled and displayed properly. The gift shop is not the usual , stuff everyone buys and they are not sure why, nice useful things. A great... More

This conservatory give you four biodomes in which to walk through. WE were just in time to join the guided tour which really enhanced the experience. Otherwise its just a room full of plants. The fourth area had a magnificent display of flowers and was a great place to sit and take pictures. All in all every enjoyable afternoon. This... More

The pyramids with all the different zones and plants were wonderful . The selection in the gift shop was very poor .; few items for children related to the conservatory's theme . Perhaps some pertinent colouring books , flower fairy books or children' s garden projects could be added .

I visited the conservatory with my family and really enjoyed it! We joined the guided tour for the four different ecosystems/pyramids and learnt a lot of new things! The pyramids are great and have plenty of species to showcase! If you like nature, Muttart conservatory is a must-see in Edmonton!

This place is not worth. $12. It took me a total of 30 minutes to visit all four pyramids. I was expecting more flowers. What is nice is taking a picture of the pyramids at night.

The four pyramids allow one to enter different climatic zones and experience different types of vegetation. One pyramid is used for temporary exhibits (when I was there, tulips and hyacinth were on display). The space within the pyramids is not that big and you can easily be finished within 45 minutes (and have seen things twice). It is a bit... More
