I visited this conservatory with my wife who likes to take pictures. If your into trees, green stuff and man-made waterfalls then this is and ideal location to go to. They have 3 atriums with different types of settings in each. The first atrium had flowers and the butterfly exhibit, second had jungle and waterfall exhibit, third had desert exhibit.... More

Not overly impresses but maybe I'm just not a plant person. Feel like I can walk through very quickly and not be impresses by anything in particular.

They need to put some money into making this an awesome location. It was very sad after visiting Pittsburgh, PA & Ann Arbor, MI.

The displays change with the seasons and are quite lovely. A photographers dream! The butterfly display in the spring is fun for kids and adults alike and there are many seasonal events the entice children to the gardens. The Christmas display is one of my favorites. It is so beautiful with a different theme every year.

This place is an oasis in Fort Wayne, taking up a city block with indoor and outdoor gardens. Even so, it seemed pretty small and only took about an hour to see. However, I’ve been to conservatories in Chicago and other big cities, so my expectations were high. We also visited on a hot and humid summer day, which didn’t... More

The Conservatory has three different gardens under cover; very pleasant on a cold windy day. The cost is only $5 for adults and we spent about 45 minutes looking around. There are several places which had various hands on activities for kids. During our visit there was a special exhibit featuring sea life made from discarded plastic items, very well... More

Found this on Trip Advisor when we were traveling in the area. Our visit just happened to coincide with the Garden Art Exhibit "Changing Tides" by Sayaka Ganz. Fascinating! The artwork was created from cast-off plastic household & industrial items. It was very creative. The more I stared at each object, the more items I could recognize. The brochure that... More

You might not spend a lot of time visiting unless you have an annual pass, but I wish I did. I could imagine sitting and reading in one of the different climate rooms on a cold winter day. They include a showcase garden (LOADS of flowers), tropical and desert. While the indoor gardens are wonderful for strolling and lingering, the... More
