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.

The Garden is open late on Wednesdays and it is the perfect time to marvel in the quietness of the glass houses or the dusky beauty of the outdoor gardens.

I'm a Cleveland native and LOVE the University Circle area! My teen daughter and I had a very enjoyable first time visit to the Cleveland Botanical Garden last month. The Garden was hosting a fall festival with a large variety of food vendors selling delicious organic and ethnic foods. You can enjoy the Botanical Garden year round, as they host... More

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
