We visited FPC over the Christmas holiday. While it was beautiful during the daylight hours, I'm sure it was spectacular in the evening. We enjoyed our visit and can't wait to return in the spring/summer.

We love botanical gardens. This place was especially nice with the different areas and the beautiful Chihuly. The Palm and Conservatory were so well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Great gift shop, too.

We recently joined the Conservatory and have attended 2 of their cooking classes. Membership is an excellent value for what you get considering the reciprocating agreements with other venues such at the Columbus Zoo and Art Museum.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The many types of biomes represented was fantastic - we especially loved the Dr. Seuss looking trees in the desert. The warmth and humidity in the jungle was a lovely treat in the Columbus winter. We were also surprised by the many plants in bloom, despite the time of year. Great gift shop, too.

I had driven past Franklin Park conservatory many times but finally got a chance to visit when my mother was in town. We spent a lovely afternoon taking our time going through the different rooms. My favorite was the butterfly room with the amazing creatures who will land on you if you're still. I took along my 10 year old... More

Transport yourself to the desert or the tropics, your choice! You can even choose both in one day. What a wonderful place to spend your day, any time really, but especially in the winter. The gardens are always changing and the classes, concerts, and special shows are always well done. This is a favorite place of ours to do a... More
