We've been going to this conservatory for many years and now our grandkids are in love with it too! They were recently asked where they wanted to go and both said "the jungle"! Its peaceful and warm, great options especially during our cold Indiana winters. You also have the opportunity to buy a small plant. Minimal entry fee - $1... More

Visited while in Indy or the New Years. Thought this would be something to do and found it very interesting. The model trains and geraniums were nice, but the walk through the greenhouse with the self guided handout was worth the small entrance fee which is really more like a donation. An excellent and relaxing way to see some rare... More

I had the opportunity to take a fall stroll through Garland Park and the surrounding area. Had a wonderful meal in a quaint little restaurant not far from the conservatory and shopped at a "wonderful" book store which is loaded with hard-to-find original books. It is an area trying to make a come-back and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience (away... More

The conservatory is small for a city the size of Indianapolis, but offers a wide variety of plants and some great photo opportunities. I wend during a weekday and there was no staff in sight which was a little creepy. The conservatory was well maintained and the plants were all health. And attached children’s garden was locked so you couldn’t... More

We were in Indianapolis for a long weekend and we're looking for a nice park for the kids to run around. This place was awesome. The grounds were beautiful. There was a nice playground just a short walk away. We really enjoyed the creative gardens in the children's section as we'll. the conservatory was amazing! A wonderful mix of beautiful... More

This is a real forgotten treasure of Indianapolis. We rarely see anyone when we go and it is wonderful! The plants and trees and a welcome change after a difficult winter. And my 3 Year old nephew was in awe of the fish in the ponds under the waterfalls. The relaxing music that they play makes for a serene and... More

My 8 & 10 year old and I went there over spring break. While the outdoor area was somewhat bleak due to nothing having sprouted there, the Conservatory was a lot of fun. Their gnome exhibit was a lot of fun! Amazing how much fun kids can have when given a piece of paper and a list of things to... More

Now granted, we have had a horrid winter for our area, and spring is late in coming, but I would thoroughly enjoy this bulb show every year! Coming from the gray outside, you enter a plethora of spring color and fragrance that conjures hopeful visions of shorts and flip flops! The best $3 I've spent this winter!

We went here on a cold winter day. The space is nice but not very big. The staff was not very welcoming and did not talk to us at all. They had a good verity of plants.

We went here at Christmas to see something different. It is nice to see a tropical location in the middle of winter. A great value. A nice place for amateur photographers, lots of photo ops.
