Orchid Mania is on and it's a wonderful time to visit the Cleveland Botanical Garden. The Glass House is always wonderful -- especially in the winter -- but add in beautiful orchids and if you got a real treat. Check to see if they'll be doing a butterfly release. There are usually birds and butterflies around, but it's fun to... More

I have been going to the Orchid Mania event for many years. The show is absolutely Beautiful. As you walk into the entrance, you are bathed in beautiful purple lights which highlight the purple orchids. Jaw dropping does not even begin to describe what you will see. This is only one of the events throughout the year. The glasshouse, with... More

What a wonderful place to visit in the midst of winter! We visited between events but it was a fun time. Butterflies fluttering and birds flying. It was nice and warm and those working there were very friendly. We plan on returning for the Orchid Show and also want to visit in the summer when the outdoor displays are open.... More

Next time I visit, I will bring a book and sit to enjoy this lovely atmosphere. On a cold winter day, what a joy to step in to a garden atmosphere. The cafe had healthy choices reasonably priced. The staff was helpful and the indoor parking convenient. the ORCHID DISPLAY was well done and very enjoyable. With the outside areas... More

Have lived in Cleveland area over 30 years and had our first visit summer 2016. Beautiful grounds, spectacular canopy walk and tower climb. Next time will take a picnic lunch and a good book just to sit under the trees and enjoy nature. Could stay all day.

Time your visit here with a butterfly release. Amazing! Most of the gardens are handicap friendly. Great pace to take kids.

We arrived in time to see Steve getting ready for the 2:00pm Butterfly Release. What a treat for this time of year. Beautiful Butterflies everywhere and colorful birds too. This is a nice place to older children.

I went with two adult relatives. I really enjoyed the gingerbread houses and Christmas trees. I was underwhelmed with the Glow thing.

$16 for 20 minutes to walk around 1 room. It might be better in the summer when you can go outside, but our visit the week before Christmas was a disappointing waste of time and money. The cloud forest room is nice and the birds and butterflies are lovely but there was liteerally nothing else to see. I have never... More
