The gardens are ALWAYS beautiful. You are never disappointed! WE came this time to see a glass display by an artist that displays his work world wide. WHAT A BEAUTY! We went at dust a wonderful time to go since we were there for both light and night. I LOVED the Asian section. The artist had planned his beautiful glass... More

The gardens are endless and beautiful but the Chihuly glass throughout the gardens add an extra level of of grandness. The movie covering his story is worth the time to watch. This is a must see for anyone visiting Denver.

After major renovations in recent years the Botanic Gardens are an extensive and impressive sight by themselves, but they are enhanced significantly by the current Dale Chihuly art glass installations. More than a dozen groupings of large scale glass are scattered through various gardens and settings. They both blend in and contrast with the flowers, shrubs and landscapes to create... More

The Chihuly exhibit was totally awesome! It would definitely ad something if it were to stay permanently as the only other real worthwhile thing here was the greenhouse/atrium area. The rest would have been mediocre without Chuhuly! A must see!

My wife and i visited the Botanic Garden in Denver on our recent vacation to Colorado. It was a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle that go along with any trip. It would be unfair to describe myself as a gardener, however i still enjoyed our time here. I thought it would be something my wife would... More

i live in denver, so i've been able to visit several times. the exhibits cycling through the gardens are incredible and always beautifully worked into the landscape. the gardens themselves are beautiful as well, and i particularly enjoy the tropical plants inside the space-dome. even during a weekday, you'll have to fight crowds.

We were in town for a tennis tournament and had time to kill before the plane. The Garden was perfect. We could stay as long as we had time and really enjoyed the Chihuly glass work since we are from Las Vegas and enjoy the Chihuly works at Bellagio.

I have seen Chihuly at many gardens and this one was just as impressive if not more. It is not a huge garden but done very well, I look forward to seeing it in other seasons as well.

Very well laid out. This is a great place for a morning or afternoon in Denver. The grounds were lovely. We were fortunate to see the Chihuly Glass exhibit. It was amazing. This is a beautiful place and well worth the visit. Free underground parking available. Gift store.
