“Pretty & well-kept; butterfly show a nice tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I have been to the Conservatory 3 separate times for the annual butterfly show. It's in a very pretty setting in Eden Park (near the Art Museum). The building is smaller than others I've been to but is very well-kept and clean. They have a good variety of plants and their exhibits are very well-done and pretty. The size actually makes it very manageable for kids or if you want to visit an attraction within a shorter timeframe.

One of my favorite things is actually the landscaping of the entrance. It's always so beautiful.

They have an annual butterfly show that attracts tons of visitors. Each year they do a theme, such as "Butterflies of India." Sometimes, the little guys hitch a ride on you. We have some fun pictures of this. There's a lot of variety of butterflies and the displays feature the plants in their natural habitat.

The only drawback about the event is that I do see an occasional butterfly trampled or wings that were damaged. That makes me sad. I guess it can't be helped in an event like this...

Also, I'd like to see some more info on conservation of plants and the habitats they help form.

I personally wish the building(s) were larger as I bet the staff would have a great time adding more exhibits!

Tip: You can rent it for special events (weddings, parties, fundraisers, etc.).

“butterfly exhibit - great fun for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

we went to the butterfly exhibit. Our boy, 5 & 3 had a great time. It wasn't all that crowded when we went and it was an easy outting for a few hours.

“If you like plants, you will LOVE Krohn Conservatory.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

It is a beautiful place to take pictures. Garden displays are colorful, always so well maintained and change from season to season. While they do ask for donations sometimes, there is no fee to enter. The little gift shop is full of lots of interesting tokens for adults and children alike. A great place for a couple or family.

“Easter Tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

When we are visiting relatives for Easter in Cincinnati, we always make a stop at the conservatory. The lush floral display and strong fragrance make you feel like Spring is around the corner. The flowers make a great back drop for family photos. The building isn't large and can be viewed in less than an hour, so a good attraction for all ages.
