Every year my mom, sisters, nephews, my kids, and myself go to the butterfly exhibit. It is beautiful with all the butterflies. They also have butterflies that are hatching and in the chrysalis. It is super warm in there so you can wear short sleeve. At times it is busy with little kids/schools. Unfortunately I can't help as to when... More

Having never been there and no expectations, I found the garden quite nice, well laid out and well maintained. The indoor areas are very lush with lots of tropical plants and well marked theme and areas. While it was not too terribly crowded, I would consider going at times when there are not a lot of people, since it makes... More

The Meijer Gardens has changed and grown in the past 20 plus years and is now a top destination world wide ; no longer just a gardens but... More

Beautiful gardens and sculptures abound in this exquisite and unique attraction. It was too cold to walk around, but the tram driver did a great job of giving information about and getting us close enough to enjoy the sculptures.

This is a wonderful place to visit in all seasons. The conservatory is a warm and serene place to visit in the winter, with many tropical plants, you feel like you could be in Hawaii. In the other seasons the grounds are beautiful with all kinds of flowers. Many places to walk and sit and rest. My husband and I... More

Spending my bday weekend in GR, and surely FM garden would be included in my to-do list. Not the best time for visiting, still worth it though. One day is enough to go through everything available over there. Actually, if you want to know in more details about each sculpture, you might need a couple of visits. My husband and... More

This is a gift for us in Grand Rapids. I cannot say enough to express our love for this wonderful area. It is comparable to any sculpture park in the US and probably the world. DO NOT miss this. It is worth visiting multiple times. The Michigan seasons change the gardens. It is a delight in all times of the... More
