The fourth pyramid allows forever changing themes. the fees are reasonable and there is also an large area... More

This unusual series of pyramid structures in the river valley houses different climate zones and unusual vegetation. This is family friendly and one can get up close to enjoy in all kinds of weather. Weddings and events have been staged in this intimate setting as well

The four pyramids as they are locally called, provide a fantastic opportunity to see plant life in a controlled and beautiful setting. The different environments in each pyramid present different flora and displays

Definitely an interesting place, and if you have the time, go and see it (especially if you have kids!) but all in all, for how much it costs and how long it took me to get through it, I probably wouldn't go again. It only took me about 30-40 minutes to see everything, it's not a full-day kind of activity.... More

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon walking thru the 4 pyramid greenhouses, each with a different theme/growth zone. Totally awesome! Took sooo many pics! Thousands of colors and different shades. The geranium expo was superb! The cactus pyramid was so cool (pardon the oxymoron-ism)! Def recommend! You can't miss the structures from the hwy.

The grounds surrounding the Muttart Conservatory are very nice, quite average, nothing spectacular, nice for a picnic or take a chair along to sit and read. The four pyramids inside are absolutely wonderful! Four different climate zones to visit with corresponding plant growth. It only takes about an hour to see it all, so don't plan on it as a... More

While in Edmonton visited the Muttart Conservatory after our visit to the Art Gallery of Albert. We stopped by on a sunny Thursday afternoon. As we pulled up we saw a few school buses which made us weary of going inside as there would be many school children over crowding us. However, to our surprise we only saw the children... More

Four pyramids with 3 different regions (temperate, semi-arid, tropical) and a seasonal showcase make a really nice place to visit for a couple of hours. I love visiting in the winter because it's a little slice of life in the icy cold - when you can smell earth and plants, it feels like a mental health break. Self guided and... More
