Nice cactus everywhere but expensive to get in. You don’t get nothing for $10 and it’s very very small but beautiful grounds. You will be fine in half hour so don’t count on that place to be a huge part of your day

I am glad I read the reviews about this garden; it helped us decide to give it a try. There is more here than you would expect. There were enormous cactus plants- so many varieties - and some palms, but there were also several hummingbirds...More

I could have stayed forever. I just love desert plants and this place has a cacterium (not sure I spelled that correctly). Just go! You won't regret it. Great place for photo ops.

We went because a friend is a tour guide. He showed us around and told us all about the cacuts and plants. Very enjoyable.

Lovely experience at the ‘Worlds First Cactarium.’ Small cactus garden with some shade and many, many succulents. Heaven! If you enjoy gardens, this is a must see!

Never seen so many cacti in terms of quantity and variety in my life before. I am not crazy about cacti but I was happy to have this five-dollar experience. Staying for 30 minutes to an hour is recommended. Enjoyable.

This delightful little garden was chock full of interesting desert plants and even in the heat was a fun experience. I liked that we spotted identification signage for many of the plants which was great. The walking ground is a bit choppy with mostly unpaved...More

Such a beautiful garden of cacti. Being from the Midwest we don't see these types of plants at all. A small, manageable and pleasant stroll, with plenty of shady spots and places to sit. I even bought a cactus to bring home - yes, on...More
