We were looking for something to do when we arrived in Cleveland. We had made plans for hotel/dinners/Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...but got in a little early and had time on our hands. Glad we found this. Beautiful gardens. Impressive Glasshouse. Gorgeous birds...butterflies...the rain forest is awesome. You won't be disappointed.

What a great place to visit. We were there in October. There were still plenty of flowers and a great variety of vegetables to explore. The pumpkin decorating was fun to look at. The glasshouse had fun things to look at. We enjoyed watching the leaf ants marching back to their home with leaves, twice as big as them.

A few of my favorite places to visit at the Cleveland Botanical Garden are the Herb and Rose Gardens. Also, I enjoy the Glass House, which has both a Desert and Rain Forest Environment. There is also a Children's Garden and many Tree Houses for Families to explore.

Went with a class from Case and so much to offer. Only saw a small part of it but everything was great. 10 acres outside and a great Rain Forest & butterfly garden inside

The botanical garden is so beautifully designed with a tropical interior space on multiple stories with butterflies and a wide variety of tropical plants. It's a wonder! And then the outdoor trails flow around through brooks and trees and gardens and some beautiful installations suitable for children and adults alike. Highly recommende!

Traveled as a couple and were going to look this place over since it was supposed to rain during our weekend visit. So glad it decided not to because this was a highlight of the trip!! The butterfly exhibit was amazing and much better than others I had been to, a must see!! I'd recommend this and it's so close... More

While there is paid parking, you'll get 1/3 off the parking fee when you purchase tickets. We arrived in time for the butterfly release in the glass house. Be sure to visit the top section, where many of the butterflies hang out. Also be sure to pick up one of the laminated butterfly guides on your into the glass house.... More

We were delighted to find this Garden . We hoped that it would have indoor and outdoor gardens and we were not disappointed. There is a darling children section. A romantic Japanese Garden and a very interesting exhibit on Madagascar and Costa Rico. This would be challenging for wheelchairs in some areas. This is a great place to come to... More

I'm not a plant person. Sure, flowers are nice, but I've never understood going to gardens and paying admission to look at plants. How WRONG I was! We learned about the new treehouses (on a PBS special, I think) and decided to give it a try. We had a WONDERFUL time and the kids had a blast! We went with... More
