Lovely destination with 4 different climate pyramids to enjoy. One pyramid changes its focus with seasons and events. Can't wait til next year for the highly anticipated Red/White display in honor of Canada's 150th celebration. Hoping it will be spectacular...Muttart doesn't disappoint!

The Mutant conservatory is a lovely little oasis in the city, very close to some excellent walking trails along the river valley. There are frequent new displays and themes in one of the pyramids. The gardens in the other pyramids remain more consistent but are a beautifully green place to visit. Also a lovely spot in the winter when it... More

We visited the conservatory with family we were visiting in Edmonton. This iconic structure splits the gardens into 4 different biomes, namely arid, temperate, tropical and a feature one. We especially enjoyed the large collection of orchids. Also great to see the amount of educational tours being organized for the kid's holidays. The gardens outside were also great for picnics...

Crossing the river in central Edmonton last December, I asked my daughter if we'd ever been to the Muttart (I got a blank stare and a "what?" in return). I motioned to the tips of the pyramids just visible over the trees and a more enthusiastic "No, but could we?" response this time, much better! Pulling over a couple of... More

Other than the steep admission price ($12.50/adult) the Muttart (pronounced "mutt" - "art") Conservatory is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, and in my case, with my SO and newborn. There are four pyramids each featuring different climate-related plants! Along with the admission is a complimentary guided tour of each pyramid that takes place at set times throughout the... More

We were told of this place by a friend who lived in Edmonton as we were heading up to visit West Edmonton Mall after a tour of Calgary and Drumheller. It was very nice but each Pyramid is a bit small and very humid and hot so if you have a hard to breathing in such conditions you may want... More

What a beautiful place to go and escape the world into the tropics. Beautiful flowers, bridges, waterfalls prepared with such excellence. A great rainy day, winter day or summer day activity.
