The Conservatory at Druid Hill Park is a nice oasis in Baltimore. It's a lovely old building and worth a visit. It's a bit compact but has several different areas, and there's stuff to see year round, including Poinsettias during the holidays. I also like the outdoor gardens, obviously nicer to see in warmer months, and a good place for... More

This is nice botanical garden. The plants are very well taken care of and they represent plants from all over the world. The path is easy to follow and there is a guide to the plants being seen by cell phone. It is a gem in the desert.The staff are baltimoreans and can give a great history of the location... More

The conservatory was built in 1888 and is still one of the most beautiful structures in Baltimore City. This is a must see when you are visiting the Zoo as well because they are located in the same park.

The Park just celebrated 150 years and this conservatory is really a treasure. It is small, but nicely redone. It contains beautiful exotic plants. It was the perfect background setting for the Baltimore Bluegrass Festival, that we attended in April.

I agree with the other reviewers, this is a beautiful offering in Druid Hill Park. The structure itself is impressive and the plants gorgeous. It is rather small as are the outside plantings. Will not take an hour to take it all in but worthy of your support to help it grow

What a great surprise we stumbled on when we were on our way to the zoo! Entry is free (they do have a donation box) and you will enjoy a nice stroll through the gardens. They have an excellent selection of exotic plants.

The conservatory itself is gorgeous. It is not as large as other conservatories but it's historic nature adds tons of charm and picturesque moments. There is a small garden outdoors as well. During the winter holidays it is transformed to a poinsettia palace. There are special events nearly every weekend so check their calendar. There is no fee but is... More

This is a wonderful place in the heart of Baltimore that transports you to many different places. The dessert house was very fascinating as I was there when the agave plant was flowering. The pond in the middle was very exciting for the kids I was with, and they had fish and turtles to feed. The fact that it was... More

Though not in the top ten of greenhouse attractions I have seen, it was fun to see the figures from Sherwood Forest interspersed through the different displays. Few unusual plant varieties, but parking right in front without a fee is great. Also great is no admission fee, though we happily contributed the suggested $5pp donation.

The Conservatory is home to beautiful and exotic plants in a setting which reminds us of the grandeur of buildings constructed in the 1880's. This is the 125th year for the Conservatory making it the 2nd oldest glass conservatory in the country. The staff is knowledgable, helpful, and anxious to answer questions. There is a "cell phone tour" which visitors... More
