Exhibits are outside and inside garden houses for viewing. Plants are changed for the seasons. Small children may find this boring but you may want to mix exhibit order to keep them interested.

Nice garden - been there twice. Pretty average in my opinion. First visit was in April and it was a little too soon - not a lot in bloom. Has some interesting varieties of plants and flowers. A little pricey though.

Had planned this trip to Atlanta for a couple of months. They have done a wonderful job in placement of installations. As you walk thru the garden you will be pleasantly surprised as you turn corners. You still have until October to visit, take the time, get some exercise. Even in a late afternoon rain was great.

July 3rd p.m. was hot but comfortable. We enjoyed Chihuly exhibit but expected more of his flashy glassworks. Will return in cooler months.

Recently visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden with family to see the Chihuly Exhibit. It was amazing the way it blended with all the landscape. We went late afternoon so we could see it in the golden light of the afternoon, enjoyed dinner at Linton's In the Garden and they viewed the Chihuly glass with night time lighting. It was really...

A MUST see! This exhibit is outstanding, especially at night! We were overnighting in Atlanta to find this amazing artist on display at the Georgia Botanical Garden. We have been long time admirers of Chihuly's works. We planed an early dinner then a tour of the gardens at 9 pm so as to get the full effect of the lighting... More

Visited the Botanical Garden for the Christmas Lights tour. Wow! The garden was beautifully lit with a variety of vignettes and types of lighting. The evening we went had been rainy but the rain stopped the mist and water even added to the sparkle of our tour. The grounds are a fun and easy walk. The outer gardens also have... More

This was our third trip to Atlanta to see performances at the Botanical Gardens. Last week we saw Lyle Lovett and his large band. It was fantastic. We arrived early so were able to sit close. Parking and getting in and out is kind of a hassle, but worth it. It's lawn seating and your chair must be low. Beer... More

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is just such a beautiful place to spend time. I love going to look at the flowers and they always have fun exhibits too. The first time I went I only planned to be there for about an hour, but I really have enjoyed going and spending a lot of time there occasionally taking a book... More
