It's free admission and the humidity inside is so nice. We have stopped in to the greenhouse several times over the last few years and always enjoy the fresh and moist air and the lovely plants. This trip we had a chance to speak to an employee who told us about their new heating system which was very interesting. A... More

I went with my grandchildren over Christmas break, as an alternative to the pricey and crowded Cleveland Botanical Garden. It was perfectly lovely. Not large, but large enough for a nice fern room, some display rooms filled with poinsettias, a nice desert garden (which the grandchildren particularly enjoyed) and lots of orchids. The kids also liked the full-grown citrus trees... More

We visited with two adults and two children (4,3). While there are a lot of plants from all over the world it really wasn't that interesting. We strolled around the area around the greenhouse and while it's always nice to be outside the grounds didn't seem to be well maintained. We drove 30 minutes to get here and it took... More

We were in from out of town and read the reviews for this greenhouse so decided to visit it. It's a nice little greenhouse, don't get me wrong, but it is not worth a trip out of the way. I can see where locals would enjoy a visit especially in the winter months, but visitors don't bother unless you're desperate... More

This is a great little place. Free! My kids like exploring and learned the life lesson of do not touch cacti. Very nice in late winter for a warm respite. Orchids are gorgeous, and in Spring the tulips are very pretty too.

This is a hidden gem for Cleveland! Tucked away near University Circle, this will amaze. Kids of all ages, adults, and all abilities will enjoy this. Perfect place for family pictures as well! No fees to enter, and no fees to take photos! Great quiet sport to study, reflect, or get away!

As most Clevelander's know, the area in January is not kind nor conducive to out entertainment. However, one can easily get to close to the feeling with a trip to the Cleveland Greenhouse. On the coldest winter day the greenhouse offers 5 large rooms of "outdoor" greenery at temperatures fit for a summer's outing! Enjoy the surroundings, the temperatures and... More

It is open year round from 10 am to 4 pm. It is free to visit. There are amazing orchid and tropical displays as well as seasonal flower displays which change. Great place to clear your mind and enjoy nature.

The garden is free as is parking so I would definitely suggest taking an afternoon to visit this little gem in Cleveland. If you are in the University Circle area or showing out of town visitors the city take half an hour or so to explore the gardens. The grounds and indoor greenhouse are showing their age but there are... More

This is a relatively small but very pleasant greenhouse set in the Rockefeller gardens. The greenhouse is well maintained, but the surrounding gardens could use some TLC. Volunteers were working on some of the beds while we visited; we expect the City cannot afford much in the way of maintenance. The Garden for the Blind is a lovely concept but... More
