“Every time is a new experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I love, this place. I went to the Orchid show in April which was amazing. Anytime I can go I do, the grounds are well maintained and just beautiful. Take the train ride if you are short on time to cover more ground.

“Jazz Festival complete wtih Monet's Garden at Giverney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We loved this event - it was a replica of Monet's garden, water lilies and all. We were able to walk around the gardens before the Jazz and after. I loved that greeted everyone with a drink & we got to take our time relaxing before hand. Nothing was rushed. Then the music began and it was beautiful. There was even food offered during the whole performance. Afterwards we were able to stroll throughout the gardens & the gift shops stayed open.

“Train show/Conservatory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The train show sounds hokey, but it's actually very interesting for adults because of the replicas of NYC buildings. The Conservatory has wonderful shows most of the year.

“a beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

What a treat if you want to be taken away to visit the beautiful gardens. you don't feel like you are even in a city. The care that is taken to keep this so lovely is wonderful.

“Flowers in Bloom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

It's really nice there. They have lots of nice and exotic flowers that you can snap pics of. I think its free if you get there by 9 am on Saturdays in the summer. Summers there are really hot, so go in the spring. Otherwise, its very enjoyable
