This is one of the most valuable memberships we have ever gotten, although of course you can also pay per visit. HBG always had a new seasonal exhibit with attractions for adults and kids. They offer interesting programs, fantastic birthday party packages, and there are always new things to find and expire tucked away in different corners of the gardens.... More

I took my two granddaughters to enjoy the gardens and the Nature in Art LEGO displays on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in April, 2015. The entire experience was delightful from beginning to end! The setting is beautiful and peaceful. It's fun for all ages, with a variety of activities and plenty of places to relax while the kids play. There... More

Here in Rocket City, with its hundreds of high tech firms, we found a great place that Wordsworth would enjoy. Nice to stroll, see the butterfly house, enjoy its periodic specials and its fantastic Christmas activities. Even its little eatery is good for lunch.

We're members of the garden -- mostly because my wife and kids love it and keep going back. They regularly have exhibits to see that keep things interesting, currently a traveling collection of Lego sculptures are on display (look for the buffalo, it's pretty impressive). It's well worth a few hours, whether you're local or visiting, especially before the summer... More

It was OK. Could have been much better if garbage and children's cloths weren't strewn about. Also noticed alot of weeds in the flowers and the flowers that didn't have weeds were still in pots waiting to be planted. Also there were lots of kids running and screaming as if it were a play ground. Also had the pleasure of... More

If you are in the Huntsville area, their Botanical Garden is outstanding. The garden has many features that make it better than other botanical garden. We were there when they had the Lego sculptures. This made the visit even better, since you had to find the location of the Lego lawn mower, bison, fox chasing the rabbit, etc. The garden... More
