What a great experience for a small fee. Check their website for admission prices and the weather before you leave. We had a wonderful day for weather which could make or break your visit. I was overwhelmed by the various themes and things to see at the Botanical Gardens. It was exciting to be in the area with all of... More

This is really a beautiful botanical garden. The outside gardens are wonderful for a stroll or long walk. Indoors there are two connecting greenhouses with simulated climates and associated plants. One is the Madagascar desert, and the other a Costa Rican rainforest. The rainforest is especially wonderful for it is inhabited with thousands of colorful butterflies. A great experience. I... More

The indoor part of the gardens reminded me of the coolest part of any zoo---the faux rain forest, where you're surrounded by trees and waterfalls and pleasant humidity, and all kinds of exotic animals. During our visit, we didn't see any of the creepy crawlies skittering on the ground that others reported; but we did see lazy box turtles, sleepy... More

Had a great time here! Great family visit! Check out my pictures! Right next to the Cleveland Museum of Art, in University Circle. Butterflies everywhere in the Madagascar exhibit. Also affiliated with the Holden Arboretum in Kirkland Ohio ( Another beautiful place for plant and outdoor lovers)

Now, before you downvote/disregard my review, or consider me common trailer trash, please take time to read my entire review. I came to this location for the first time in maybe 10+ years (the last visit was likely on a something-grade field trip in elementary school) tonight to attend a happy hour Great Lakes Brew Co. event. Regarding the event,... More

Nice butterfly room and beautiful plants. An easy walk from Case Western Reserve University. Enjoyed the vegetable gardens. This would be a great place to have a party or wedding.

This place is best to see in the spring and summer time. Even though it is open all year. The best time is the spring and summer. The garden has a wide range of plants from all over the world. The gardens are breath taking and peaceful here. It hard to believe that this place is in the heart of... More

Remembering the days when the Garden was free, I don't like paying the admission fee, but honestly the place is worth it. The Western Reserve Herb Society Herb Garden is truly world class in design and variety of herbs. The Children's Garden is pure delight for adults--and children seem to find it a Nature's playground. The indoor exhibits are pleasant... More

Adults: $11.00 Children (3-12): $6.00 Children under 3: Free Gardens are well kept. Walkways and paths are clear of clutter. Special children's section. Many signs to explain what most of the plants / flowers you are looking at are called. Included in the admission cost is a Butterfly Habitat that you enter through the main lobby. It is a decent...

What a relaxing rainforest to walk through and enjoy as all the butterflies flutter around you! Other enjoyable areas but this part is a must see (and see again!)
