Delightful conservatory, gardens and outstanding sculpture. Many great art installations during the Oct. "Art Prize". The tram thru the property tours major sculpture by notable artists.

We regularly visit FMG and go with certain things planned. At Christmastime the interior is decorated with trees and other traditional icons from around the world. In April live butterflies inhabit the tropical garden which is great fun. During the warmer weather, the walking trails are amazing for art scholars and if you want to ride the tram, check the...

My husband and I received a membership as a gift. Our first experience at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park was the Butterfly exhibit. I can't even explain how amazing it was. I thought we were going to see them behind glass, but we got to go inside the exhibit and walk around with them. There were hundreds of beautiful... More

I went to see the Christmas trees. Each tree was decorated with customs from a different country. It was a great way to spend a few hours. I think I could have spent the entire day. I will be back for sure.

I have taken all my out-of-town guests to Meijer Gardens. It's one of my favorite places. It delights the senses of both children and adults. A vast pallet of colors tease each of one's senses with the changing of the seasons. There is something magical about each part of the gardens. The special exhibits are lush with inspiration and design.... More

My wife and i have been members for several years. Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park consistently provides high quality exhibits, programs, speakers, live entertainment in a beautiful setting. It has something for the entire family. We are very blessed to have this wonderful organization in the Grand Rapids/ West Michigan community.

We spent time in the children's garden. It was amazing. Tons of interactive activities, water fun, an amazing tree house, a sand pit to dig for dino bones and so much more. Very informational plaques and hosts who are able to answer questions. Bathroom facilities available. Being outside is so much more relaxing with young kids. The beauty is ever... More

Beautifully laid out acreage, especially the butterfly exhibit in the spring is a must see! Reasonable pricing, cafeteria is good. Go seasonally for different exhibits.

Beautiful gardens, inside and out. Love being outside and walking. Fun venue for a concert. Bring your own chair but be sure to measure...if you don't they will. Dimensions on the website. Coolers are acceptable but you have to buy beer and wine onsite. Prices are reasonable.
