A lot to see, but be ready to walk

A great place to visit with a lot to see for people of all ages. The butterfly house was the part my family liked the most.

I have a 7 yr old that just loves going to the Botanical Garden Show of Lights for Christmas. We have been for the last 3 years and she always picks out the new additions each year. It amazes me how she can remember so much from year to year with so many settings. She also loves the games and... More

We are full-time RVers visiting Huntsville. This is a very nice botanical garden with lots of walking paths, and plenty of places to sit and relax (and picnic). There is a well-done children's garden and a great butterfly house. The gardens are well-kept and the staff is friendly and helpful. They are open year-round and vary their exhibits, and their...

Even if you don't love gardens, this is a wonderful experience. The gardens are well maintained, and the butterfly house is extraordinary. We visited while the Lego exhibit was on the grounds. If you have children who love Legos they will be amazed at the large sculptures. Even the adults were impressed. This garden is well worth a couple of... More

Was amazed at the Lego display at the Botanical Garden: everything from butterflies to a Buffalo and calf all nestled in acres of flowering plants. A perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon. If you miss this experience, and the giant lego displays you are missing a sensory treat the likes of which you won't soon again see. A great... More

The garden is beautiful and the exhibits are always interesting, but sometimes I just go to the gift shop. Good selection and very nice, helpful people working there.

We went during the Lego exhibit and the children enjoyed seeing how many legos went into each structure. We really enjoyed the children's garden as well as the other surprises for the kids. They loved the hammocks. My only regret was only allowing ninety minutes for our visit. We did not get to see every thing.

Wonderful gardens to walk around in. During February you can take your dog. Nice place for kids to run around in. They have many events throughout the year. Good for birthday party's.
