My husband and I have visited the Botanical Garden several times and decided to go to Glow this past week. There were a lot of Gingerbread Houses displayed throughout the interior and we enjoyed looking at those. There was a small train ride that kids could go on through the outdoor gardens as well as an area to make your... More

My wife and I were visiting Cleveland and stopped by the Botanical Gardens for their "Glow" holiday display. We really enjoyed our time. The gardens are beautiful and they had gingerbread houses and Christmas trees all throughout that were decorated by local families and organizations. There is a small train ride for kids and live music as well.

This facility is right across the street from the world class Cleveland Museum of Art. So park in one or the other and visit both. The garden facility is modest but first class, worth a brief visit. There is a fine rare botanical book area to buy some very fine classic books and prints of botanical images. This is yet... More

The highlight of my visit was the glasshouses with the Madagascan and Costa Rican themes. In the Madagascan part, I saw two chameleons, three 40+ year old tortoises and many interesting birds. The Costa Rican exhibit had many butterflies. The gift shop is a great place to buy books about gardening. I found many interesting books about harmful and beneficial... More

I wanted to give this 3 1/2 points. It is good but quite compact. There was a modest entry fee which I was happy to pay to support the gardens. Inside is a small glass house with arid and rainforest exhibits. Outside there are nice gardens for a short stroll complete with chipmunks and squirrels. In Autumn the colours were... More

The botanical garden is a nice place to go for relaxation. The glassed in Costa Rica exhibit is beautiful, especially the birds and butterflies, and its warm in the winter! The outdoor gardens are equally impressive but of course, what's flowering depends on the seasons. Definitely worth the trip and admission.
