We went on a rainy day since it is all indoors. The orchids were gorgeous and the bonsais were amazing. The butterfly exhibit was stunning- I just wish it were more informative (I used to work in a butterfly garden and felt the educational aspect was lacking but was very impressed with their secondary containment efficiency). The whole experience was... More

Was fortunate to be there for butterfly display. Breathtaking. A lovely place to go and just relax. Easy access and plenty of parking. Give yourself plenty of time so you can drink in all the splendor, Otherwise you will have travelled that way but sold yourself short.

We have gone twice now and it is so much fun watching the butterflies and the younger kids enjoy the butterflies. They giggle when one lands on their head or shoulders. Staff are very respectful about watching patrons following the rules to protect all.

Krohn Conservatory is located on the Eden Park grounds. Currently, the butterflies from the Philippines are on the right side of the conservatory. There is a fee to walk through this display and interact with the many varieties of butterflies. There are three other exhibits to walk through also - cactus, orchids and bonsai displays as well as a waterfall... More

Visited during a butterfly exhibition with additional information and culture presented on the Philippines. At times it was very crowded. The area was lush with flowers and all sorts of tropical plants. A beautiful waterfall and stream with koi got the attention of our 4 yr old granddaughter. The Philippine dancers were very interesting...they also passed out small desserts! Too... More

Even when the staff was busy changing exhibits, they went out of the way to make you feel welcome. It is a peaceful way to spend an hour as we walked the paths and interacted with all the amazing plants and trees. Keep up the great work!

This is a plant lover's spot. There is an orchid and desert section including bonsai plants, a seasonal show room, a walk through a waterfall, and a rain forest room. Of special note is the seasonal display especially at Easter. There is also a spring butterfly exhibit that is really fun to take the kids to. Plants here are gorgeous... More

The Krohn Conservatory is definitely one of the gems of Cincinnati. My favorite times to visit are during the Buttterfly Exhibit and at Christmas when the conservatory is decked out for the holidays. Other exhibits occur as well during the year and each one is special as well as educational. Even when there is nothing "special" happening, the atmosphere is... More
