ok it's a little pricey considering it's smaller than I thought but this is so well done. Also, we saw flowers and plants we've never seen before and that's no easy task. If you're at the park do this one. Really enjoyed it. We would do it again!

The Conservatory of Flowers is one of the many crown jewels of Golden Gate Park and a must see for architecture and garden buffs. Not only does the glass building look like it comes out of the pages of a fairy tale, the exotic plants and flowers inside are equally magical and enthralling. There are so many interesting and unusual... More

Husband and I went. He likes to smooch in the little quiet alcoves so there's a second date tip for you. OK for kids but they might not appreciate the offerings. Well priced and the outdoor lawn is beautiful for a picnic. Gift store has some neat offerings as souveniers.

There are all kinds of plants and flowers with labels. We were there for the miniature train exhibit which was average even though they worked hard to include plants. It is well maintained beautiful and the blooms were fantastic.

The entrance fee is steep for such a small venue, but it's definitely worth seeing. The Victorian Greenhouse is spectacular, and the variety of plant habitats is incredible. The damp, humid air may be difficult for some, but it's required for maintaining the diverse plant environments.

I had not been in the conservatory of flowers since I was a kid and grew up in San Francisco. This is a must see if you love plants of all types from the desert to tropical to orchids etc. The best of the day!!!

Quaint little building with different types of flowers. I was especially impressed with the orchids and the link to the higher temperature rain forest. Think it was $8 to get in for about an hour. My partner who is an avid gardener loved it.

Boring? Think again!! We had so much fun! We went right when it opened at 10 am. Paid $8 per person and went in to explore this beautiful place. The glass, especially the stained glass takes you to another time. This was built in the 1800's. So many plants and flowers and trees to learn about and great photo ops!... More

The place is SO much smaller than I have imagined. There is like 5 rooms, each with a very different temperature so be ready to feel humidity, heat and cold all within the same hour. The entrance is cheap, and even if it was expensive, this place is worth your money! So beautiful, so many different species of plants and... More
