The Cleveland Botanical Garden was extremely beautiful. Both indoor and outdoor gardens are well kept and full of plants and wildlife(could of skipped seeing the tarantula though kind of freaked me out) Do not go here if you are not comfortable with nature because birds, butterflies, and chipmunks are a common occurrence. You are not packed in like sardines which... More

I never tire of this place! There is always plenty to see, to learn and to enjoy here for the entire family. This is most definitely a site to visit in Cleveland. Plan on spending time walking through the CBG grounds, the Children's Garden, the Madagascar and Butterfly buildings. Check out the CBG website for current special events such as... More

We have been to many gardens and conservatories, and this is one of the best we have seen. The outdoor gardens and trails are lovely, but the indoor conservatory is truly special. Very well worth the time and money!

I am originally from Cleveland and in all my trips back had never visited the botanical gardens. I hadn't realized what a lovely place I had missed. Two highlights for me where the herb garden and the Glasshouse. The variety of butterflies was wonderful. I couldn't stop photographing them. Loved it!

Bigger than we thought, wish we had allowed more time. Lots to see and well marked with good descriptions and interesting tidbits of information. Highlight was the glass house...especially the birds and butterflies. A very pleasant way to spend the day appreciating nature's beauty and diversity.

What a pleasant stop in the middle of the city. The glasshouse containing biospheres from Madagascar and Costa Rica are a great experience and intro to the flora of these two climates. The outdoor themed gardens are well laid out and the plants well identified. On a hot day Hosta Hill, Shade Garden and Woodland Garden are quite welcome. There... More

Whatever you do, make sure you visit both glasshouses (their connected). These may have been my favorite part. One is a desert climate with reptiles and tiny birds, the other is a cloud forest, filled with butterflies. The plantings in both are nice, but the layout and atmosphere was the real draw. We visited the cafe before venturing out to... More

The Butterfly Garden is great! Walking outside through the gardens on a warm, sunny day can't be beat! Some cool and unusual gifts available in the gift shop.

You may think kids would be bored here, but my 6 and 4 year old girl and boy loved it. Not very big really, but has butterflies and very nice outdoor area.

There was a Lego exhibit that was fun to see. Sculptures of roses, orchids, a fox and rabbit and more located throughout the gardens. The children.s garden was delightful. The girls climbed a rock wall, looked for frogs in the ponds, climbed tree trunks, made mud pies, and so much more. The butterflies were amazing! A truly awesome place to... More
