Step out of the cold and into a wonder land of beauty. Great place for picture taking. If you have cabin fever take a trip here.

I always wanted to visit and the free entry on MLK day gave me the opportunity. I'm sure it is splendid when you can also take in the outside gArdens. You can view the interior gardens in twenty minutes.

I love visiting botanical gardens, and seek them out wherever we travel, so I've had a chance to see some wonderful ones throughout the U.S. and the world. Cleveland's is far from the largest or most extensive, but it does a lot with the available space. The outdoor gardens are very nice, offering a surprising diversity of plants and aesthetics...

Paths wind through nine huge gardens. Roses were gorgeous. Herbs were interesting. The Japanese garden was unique. The woodland forest is serene. The children's garden was creative with its short potting bench, log stools, small trowels, a hand pump, and sandbox. Each of the nine youngsters there were totally engrossed in digging. I've been there in May and October. It... More

Beautiful Christmas display of lights outside, and a great collection of gingerbread houses and trees inside. A very enjoyable afternoon. I will return in the spring and summer for a walk around the gardens when they are in bloom.

We went through the interior rain forest gardens pretty quickly, as they aren't very large. The rest was decorated for the holidays. Too many gingerbread house displays for the out of towers, although I'm sure the local families got a kick out of contributing. The only thing that offsets the cost of admission here is that the Art Museum is... More

I think the reason why this was so disappointing is I've been to better botanical gardens. Compared to places like Longwood in PA, it's a bummer to visit. First off, the price is not worth the visit. I think we paid like $16 per person or something like that. It's such a small botanical garden. I lived outside of Cleveland... More

I took my 10 year-old niece to the Botanical Gardens over Christmas break one evening for the "Glow" holiday display. I wasn't sure it would hold her interest, but we had a wonderful time. Waited to reach the Gardens until after dark, which made the experience all the more vivid and enjoyable. We toured the Costa Rica rain forest and... More

If you have never been to the Cleveland Botanical Garden for Christmas, this is a must for your next Christmas outing. The trees that decorate the inside of Garden are from the local Garden Clubs of Northeast Ohio. OMG they are beyond beautiful. The lobby of the Garden not only has a magnificent Christmas tree, but the Amaryllis and Poinsettias... More

Went to the Botanical Garden for the "Glow" holiday display. All of the Gingerbread Houses and Christmas trees were very interesting and enjoyable. But, a walk thru the botanical gardens would have been more enjoyable against a dark night sky rather than a cloudy winter midday blue sky. There were also activities and a train ride for children as well... More
