Loved both the Butterfly Atrium and the Gardens! Gardens require a lot of walking but very much worth the exercise. The butterflies were beautiful and plentiful, flying around and feeding on fruit. Little children need to be watched so as not to harm butterflies. Nice gift shop for butterfly and bird lovers alike.

Butterfly garden is definitely the highlight - the kids had never seen anything like it. The beautiful rose garden is huge and well kept. A must see while in Hershey. Also near the Hershey Hotel so walked up the hill and walked around the grounds and lobby of the hotel. Stunning interior

A must see when you come to Hershey for flower lovers! If you need to take a break from the hustle stop here and commune with nature! Kids would get bored quickly but older adults love it! Move at your own place and lots of seating to rest amount the flowers!

The Hershey Gardens are amazing! Could have spent all day here if not for the near 100 degree weather. They do have umbrellas to carry for some shade. The rose garden is huge and so colorful and fragrant. The Children's garden is beautiful ,creative, and interactive. My 7 year old daughter had the best time and I felt like a... More

Lots of beautiful foliage so it was just relaxing to walk around and spend a few hours there. I don't thin you can spend an entire day there but it is definitely worth checking out. They have Groupons from time to time so I would keep an eye out for one of those.

So much to see-beautiful scents awesome trees and flowers. Kid friendly. Playing find the frog was a highlight for the kids. Love the nature walk even in the July heat. Interactive attraction for kids. You could get lost in the gardens. It felt like we walked and Wales through so many different paths.

Spent a great morning here enjoying the flowers and butterflies. Japanese garden also very nice. Good place for a leisurely walk and to tire out a couple of kids. Recommended.

Beautiful place! Very clean and inviting. Best part of the experience is the butterfly exhibit. The butterflies fly around freely, and there are many flowers, trees, and fruit for them to land on. Outside are lush gardens to walk through. There's is a children's garden to walk through that includes Hershey kiss statues that have a timer that puff water.... More
