The Cleveland Botanical Garden is maintained, inside and out, year round. But their special shows shine seasonally. GLOW at Christmas time, with dozens of trees decorated by local garden clubs. The Orchid Show is only one of many others. Two glass houses - Madagascar House and the Butterfly House are heated and lovely. Butterflies are released daily -- if you... More

From the spring through the fall, the gardens outside are maintained and reflect the changing seasons. There is a Japanese Garden, (a beautiful and popular spot for weddings), rain water gardens, a formal herb garden, roses, and the Hershey's Children's garden and play area with a tree house, a farming exhibit that involves the children in planting and growing crops...

For a botanical garden, I was surprised that there were not more flowers or colours involved. The representation of the Costa Rican and Madagascarian rain forest was fairly accurate and interesting. The butterflies were plentiful and free flying. Beware: the birds and animals are all free flying/roaming and while monitored to some extent, can do as they please. If you... More

It was during the Orchid Show. They showcased the orchids in their entrance foyer as well as in the gardens themselves. They also had their gift shop and a special area where you could buy orchids and orchid-related items. The Gardens themselves are very nice. It is basically one large room encompassing plants, birds, butterflies, and a few insects. There... More

Lovely flowers, waterfall and birds. A great way to relax although the art work presented on the second floor (it was made from flowers) left me unimpressed.

My wife and I were headed to Little Italy in this part of town. After our wonderful visit to Little Italy, we were heading back, and saw the signs for this place. We had a little time still and decided to check it out. Talk about lucky. This is a wonderful place and a great way to spend an afternoon.... More

As most Clevelander's know, the area in January is not kind nor conducive to out entertainment. However, one can easily get to close to the feeling with a trip to the Cleveland Greenhouse. On the coldest winter day the greenhouse offers 5 large rooms of "outdoor" greenery at temperatures fit for a summer's outing! Enjoy the birds and Butterflys of... More

We wanted to see the butterflies...and we did, but so much more. The whole place was decorated still for Christmas complete with ginger bread houses that families and businesses had donated. They were really special... More

The CBG's winter show, Glow!, is amazing. The halls are filled with gingerbread houses and trees decorated by local families and clubs. There are crafts and activities for kids and a train ride. We spent three hours there with my 6 and 4 year old children. There is live music, opportunities to purchase food and drinks and of course, the... More
