The Cleveland Botanical Garden glasshouse offers wonderful insight into the Madagascar Spiny Forest and Costa Rican Rainforest. This is a very authentic and well done exhibit, with lots of activities for kids, including the chance to see chameleons and lots of butterflies. Congratulations for a job wonderfully done!

I visited the Gardens for the first time in December. Everything was decorated beautifully and so festive. When I went a different time during the year it was..boring. The price is way to high to visit unless there is a special event going on. I was very disappointed.

The Cleveland Botanical Gardens opened their doors to folks to invite them in to view a wide range of beautiful orchids. Their greenhouse was like a tropical forest with amazing colors and smells. This show was amazing; especially coming off of what most consider to be a brutal February in Cleveland.

My guy, myself, Mother and sister briefly toured the Cleveland Botanical Garden as part of Lolly the Trolley tour. The plants and flowers were pretty and smelled good. We did not see any special exhibits.

I love visiting the gardens. I enjoy the spring and summer months of walking in the outdoor gardens and experiencing the butterfly exhibits. I have just recently visited for the Orchids at Night exhibit and had a great time. Beautiful flowers and enjoyable date night. I look forward to the spring for another visit and would love to check out... More

While I wasn´t THRILLED about the price for entrance, I understand that they need to keep everything going and our money goes to help them. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised with how many things entertained our 4 yr old. We went in March, so it was cold, and we just went into the glasshouse. He loved the butterflies,... More

Beautiful place for adults and kids alike. The flowers and grounds are beautiful in every season but especially fun is the pizza garden, where they make wood fired pizzas from items grown right there. The patio is a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. If you are with kids be sure to be in the butterfly... More

This was my first time visiting Orchid Mania. Due to a busy schedule, we were only able to go on a Wednesday evening after dark. It was in the glass house, so it was very dark, but romantic! They were serving beer and wine in the cafe area, and people were able to take their drinks with them as they... More

Such a beautiful and amazing place! We had our wedding photos taken here in August 2014. We purchased a membership and came back in December for the Christmas holiday events like Ginger bread house decorating. Ice skating is near by on the circle. The gardens is a great place to visit for a few hours or the whole day because... More

We returned once again for the orchid show. While the flowers were beautiful the execution of the theme...MardiGras was tacky at best. Tossing beads in every corner was pretty much the sum total of the decorations. We were also hounded by a volunteer to buy raffle tickets. The elevator from the parking garage was out of order requiring a multi... More
