4 pyramid shaped green houses, each a different climatic zone. All were very good. Wonderful display of plants, well identified. Easy to walk. Nice cafe to eat in

A lovely place to visit...and re-visit. There is the Arid (desert like) room and another Tropical (Jungle like). I find it very relaxing to visit and take in all the sights and sounds and smells, and read up on the different plants and trees.

If you want to have a relaxing day, this is definitely the place to go. Good for the soul where you can just walk and not think about anything. If you find yourself hungry after the walk, there's the nice Culina Cafe.

Very well presented in 4 different glass pyramids. One of the areas is a seasonal display, which was commemorating 40 years of the conservatory when I visited. It is not the largest greenhouse conservatory, but I feel it packs in as much plant diversity and art pieces as its space will allow, and beautiful grounds as well.

I love Muttart Conservatory. Everyone of the four pavilions are different by climate. You can spend hours there, they have a little restaurant too.

Nestled as a prominent feature at the near downtown river valley ski hill consists of four interconnected glass pyramids with surrounding reflective walking areas and flower beds. Different climate zones of modest size and one ever changing flower theme pyramid and attached restaurant is a welcomed reprieve particularly during inclement weather. The areas are pleasantly arranged with walking trails. Typically... More

I went with my wife. Nice exhibition in the conservatory. We enjoyed very much looking every pyramid with different types of plants and flowers.

We were here for a wedding and were able to visit all the plant zones afterwards. Each pyramid has it's own plant zone, so lots of variety of plants and flowers to see. Very well taken care of and plants are very well marked. Good activity for all ages.
