We were visiting friends and they took us here. The temperature outside was -15, so it was great to get inside some place warm! This was the perfect stop. We had a relaxing time wandering among the different rooms and flowers/plants. In some areas, they could have used a few more labels so you could tell what things were, while... More

The gardens are a treasure that we take for granted. It has been recently renovated and is cleaner and more beautiful. It is a great way to loose some of the winter blues by walking through the gardens and breathing in the beautiful fragrances of the plants. Workshops are offered here as are activities for children. The flower shows are... More

First, the building itself is just beautiful and so historical. After paying in the lobby, we started our tour outside with the planted flower beds. We also had a scavenger hunt for the children, which kept things interesting for the kids. For the most part the outdoor beds were well kept and beautiful. They had varied specimens of gorgeous colors,... More

I've been to many fine botanical gardens and in recent years, this one is right up there with the best of them. It is on a lovely, large piece of land and the outdoor gardens, while relatively small, are really nice to stroll through. The garden buildings themselves are beautiful old behemoths that set the tone of a gracious (maybe... More

We visited on martin Luther King holiday. The parking lot was full, we had to park on the street. It was crowded inside, which detracted from our visit. Lots of kids running around. Best to go mid week, when it isn't busy.

I grew up in Buffalo and during a visit to the area last Easter, I decided to bring my kids and husband to the Botanical Gardens. I myself hadn't been in a very long time, so it was almost like seeing it the first time myself. We are not gardening experts, but we appreciate beautiful and unique plants. There were... More

I was visiting Buffalo at Xmas and my parents wanted to take me here. I had been once before in a May visit and viewed the outside then too - not much more than a couple of acres of common Nursery plants with no landscape features. This visit was to see the Xmas theme. Most of the attraction was the... More

We visited just before Christmas and the seasonal displays were beautiful.There were huge groupings of colorful poinsettias. They had decorated many of the trees and plants with seasonal items so it made for a fun visit. We've been there in the summer and spring to enjoy similar seasonal displays. It a very nice facility and worth a visit if you're... More
