This was great for our whole family! There was so much to see that we couldn't get through it all in the couple hours we were there...

We've visited the garden every year, for many years, for the annual Galaxy of Lights. The lights are up usually from around Thanksgiving to Christmas. They add displays every year. We love the tradition we have of getting hot chocolate and seeing the lights. Our family loves it and yours will too.

I'll preface this by saying I have a black thumb. So not a plant person. But the grounds are lovely and well cared for. They have the separate vegetable and herb garden and then all the varietiies spread throughout. They were starting to set up Xmas displays. The butterfly house is lovely. There is a children's area. Very peaceful. Employees... More

I did not get to see the Huntsville Botanical Garden in all of its natural splendor as I went with my mom and brother in December, at night, to see the Galaxy of Lights. It was beautiful, however, and I had a lot of fun driving through and seeing all of the various creative displays in all of their colored... More

We loaded the car and went for the lovely Christmas drive through the gardens. It was enjoyed by all! The price was $20 per car. We felt that was a little steep and $10 would have been more appropriate. However - well enjoyed!

I find the Garden to be a peaceful place to visit - love the Christmas lights/displays. And, the Garden is especially gorgeous in the spring!

The gardens are lovely; each season has different displays. Bulbs and flowers/veggies are sold in the spring. During Xmas there is a walking/driving tour of lights. It is long and well worth the small cost and beauty to be seen. A good attraction for all nature lovers.

My family and I try to go at least once a year. The gardens are beautiful in the Spring and they do a wonderful Christmas light show every year during the Christmas season. Worth the trip!

If you are in Huntsville during the holiday season, definitely go through the Galaxy of Lights. Extremely impressive.

The Botanical Garden is one of those places that I wish I went to more often. The gardeners and docents are always rotating plants and displays so that there is always something to enjoy. The garden is quite expansive and in the winter you should definitely go and see the Galaxy of Lights. Maybe not every year... But it is... More
