We love botanical gardens and conservatories, so of course this was on our list of "to dos" in Vancouver. It's quite small, but really lovely. Bird spotting guides are provided so you can identify the numberous birds that fly free inside the conservatory. We did the loop three times just so we could take it all in, and were able... More

This is a hidden gem in a beautiful park, although we visited a few days after a big storm the park's quality was evident. The conservatory itself is a great place to spend an hour or so. The building is an amazing looking sunken geodesic dome, looking like something out of a 70's sci-fi movie. Although it's small inside, about... More

This is essentially a smaller version of the Montreal Biodome. Birds, fish, plants. You'll be in for a delightful hour or so. Well worth the modest entrance fee. The Conservatory is located in the centre of Queen Elizabeth Park - which is worth an hour or two on its own. There are two subway stations within a 10 minutes walk... More

I love my visits to the conservatory. Located at Queen Elizabeth park, which is one of the highest points in the city. Fantastic views of the downtown skyline from the park. The conservatory is full of beautiful plants, flowers and birds. Such a treat and a wonderful break from the busy city.

I wasn't sure I would be all that impressed. I have been to some amazing places where there are wild birds that fascinate. And the dome seemed small. But the price was reasonable, and there was a guide to help us identify the birds. Turned out I had a great time! The birds were easy to see (specifically at the... More

I was only expecting to see exotic flowers in this renovated conservatory. Then I saw a sign saying: "don't step on the birds". This is true. You need to pay attention as this greenhouse is full of birds... from tiny to really big. You need to be very careful as the tiny ones are looking for food everywhere and I... More

Only 6.50 Canadian to walk inside the renovated Conservatory. It is a small jewel with the most beautiful birds everywhere among the greenery. Excellent staff to talk to you about the conservatory, plants and especially all the birds. We couldn't stop snapping photos and video. The feeding stations allow you to witness the small birds up close and personal, many... More

You get the first taste of the excitement as you are walking up to the Conservatory - with the beautiful views of the gardens and the city of Vancouver. I have been here many times and have always loved it. We come from Seattle Washington area and this is always on my list of things to see. The gardens are... More

Walked around for the little ones and they seem to enjoy there time inside. Good variety of plants and birds. The kids seem to like it but the facility was relatively small so did too loops of the place. If you need to get away from the rain with with little ones good place to spend an hour. If you... More
