This was well worth the $8 admission price. The beautiful building is perfectly set in Golden Gate Park. Inside there are flowers and plants of every type. The orchids are especially beautiful. I highly recommend this if you want a relaxing visit to a lovely locale.

The first thing I noticed about this place is the striking facade. The white conservatory with the plush gardens in front make for a very picturesque photo but nothing compares to the gorgeous plants you can find inside. I'm not much of a botanist, but I quite enjoyed my trip here. It was fascinating to discover all these new plants... More

The entry to the area is 7$ and is worth the amount. The collection of plants and flowers are awesome. The place can get very warm inside as they have to maintain the tropical climate. Depending on your interests in botanics, etc. it will take you around 60-90mins to cover this area.

I visit this beautiful place once a week to take pictures of all the exotic flowers they grow here. My favorite flowers are the water lilies.

I love flowers so this was a must-see for me for a week in San Francisco. Really enjoyed the grounds and the indoor displays. Admission was relatively inexpensive. Exhibits were family-friendly.

It's early Saturday morning in Golden Gate Park, there is free parking by the Conservatory of Flowers, which doesn't open until 10, but, outside the Conservatory, down some steps to the right, you will find the Dahlia Dell, from summer until early Fall. Honey and Carpenter bees are floating on the morning wind currents, tasting each blooming flower as part... More

The conservatory is closed on Mondays. Boo hoo! but we could still see the beautiful dahlias outside for free! They were so many different kinds. They were planted in a large fenced circle. There were many gardeners pruning the flowers who were happy to answer your gardening concerns. If I ever decide to plant dalihas I now know the correct... More

My friend and I spent the afternoon in Golden Gate Park and this was definitely a highlight! The pricing and especially the student pricing were extremely reasonable. We loved the Victorian feel of the building and all of the plants were beautiful.The special exhibit was carnivorous plants which was interesting, but we loved the whole thing so much that we...
