The renovations are astounding! There is so much to see and fun paths to explore. However, the admission price of $11 to see plants and flowers for just an hour or so is just a tad too much for me and won't be going back unless there is a special.

We got free admission from reciprocity with the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. The garden is great. Never been in a botanical garden in which the plants are so well labeled. Well maintained, well laid out. Really enjoyed our visit.

We were going to go to the Cleveland Museum of Art, but didn't have that much time and decided to go the the Botanical Gardens instead. I'm glad we did. The weather was perfect and the gardens were stunningly beautiful. Definitely worth the visit. The rainforest/butterfly garden were also really amazing. There were many different kinds of butterflies and birds.... More

I wish I was asked about the AAA discount though. The indoor exhibit had a clear path to follow and was highly informative - about the Madagascar desert environment and the Costa Rica rain forests. Outdoors in an unusually chilly August was delightful - fun finding all the lego sculptures. I knock off one star for not telling me about... More

It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into this place. The explanations speak to children and normal adults in an understandable way. The greenhouse is fantastic with a real colony of leaf eating ants. It's more than just a botanical garden, this place inspires thought while educating. A must see

These Gardens were absolutely beautiful and fun for the entire family. My children 3 and 10 both enjoyed it. The Lego displays were really fun to see and the children's garden was really fun for kids of all ages.

We visit botanic gardens everywhere in the USA, and this one has a lot to offer within a small space: two greenhouses and ten acres. In the greenhouses you can experience two world destinations you might not ever get to visit personally: Madagascar (desert) and Costa Rica (rain forest). And the gardens had some wonderful features: gorgeous iron work, extensive... More

The Glass House was definitely the high point of our visit; the butterflies in the rain forest habitat were amazing. The outdoor gardens were nice but not spectacular. This could have been in part due to the timing of our visit, but it's difficult to rate other ornamental gardens after visiting Longwood Gardens.

When the Cleveland Art Museum next door has free general admission why should the Botanical Garden ask visitors to pay almost #12 dollars for admission - especially when parking is so expensive and difficult to find? Admission should be free or much less expensive all the way around. This area takes money from far too many unsuspecting and otherwise informed... More
