Hubby and I enjoyed walking around the gardens even though not too much in bloom right now. The Japanese Gardens especially beautifully landscaped. They were still working on a lot of the areas. It wasn't senior day when we arrived and together with parking fees the $ added up. We would suggest it however in the summer months.

If you like flowers and seeing them in their environment, then this is a trip worth taking. The rooms are separate and individualized for the type of environment that applies to that flora. The best part though is that it is smack dab in the middle of University Circle whose other attractions include the Cleveland Art Museum (FREE) and the... More

We went for Big Spring Event and Christmas events with kids 2&4 yr olds & loved everything about it. Yes adult price for events $12 however kids under 3 are free and they are the reason for us to go there.

Being there in mid-April didn't provide us all the splendor of the summer months but we did enjoy our visit for all they had to offer.

I was looking forward to going but was let down. I understand that it was just bad timing that nothing was really blooming when I went but it was still disappointing. Definitely not worth the price this time of year. I was hoping the Madagascar themed area would be bigger. We were lucky enough to be there for a butterfly... More

What a cool twist on a botanical garden! It has all the required elements--rose garden, Japanese garden, herb garden, etc, etc. What I found makes the Cleveland Botanical Garden different is the indoor "glass house." It could be considered a greenhouse AND a butterfly garden in one. And the upstairs was very cool, like looking down onto the rainforest canopy.... More

We lucked out when our visit coincided with the spring flower show. I felt like doing what an adorable little girl did as soon as she peered through the "tunnel" and saw the larger than life artificial flowers and all the beautiful hydrangeas and other real flowers: she hopped from one foot to the other, clapped her hands and spun...

Not much to add other than it is over priced and not worth it for what they have. There is an upstairs 'canopy' that was neat though.

After spending a full day at Case Western to determine whether or not it was THE university for my son to attend, we decided to pop into the botanical garden. What a great decision. The majority of our time was spent in the Costa Rican rainforest observing the birds, butterflies, and other living things around us. The sound of running... More
