Pretty inside, small, nothing special. Ok if you just want to spend an hour to walk around and see exotic plants. Butterfly exhibit was nice, but long lines and extremely hot inside.

Friend was visiting early this Spring. I took her to see the Butterfly show. My friend really enjoyed it but there were a lot of kids the day we attended. If you have young children then this is the place you should go.

We go to the conservatory every year for the butterfly show. The conservatory is cool to see throughout the rest of the year but the butterfly exhibit is always amazing. The interactive aspect in the main greenhouse is so neat & great for photography opportunities. And it's fairly inexpensive.

What an amazing place! A great variety of plants and flowers. We totally enjoyed looking at all the varieties, and taking our time wandering around the gardens. Totally recommend.

Free parking is a plus. Disappointed by most of the plants not marked on what they were. Small cute orchid room. Liked the coy in the ponds. I think I was expecting more by the way the reviews are. Try Fairchild gardens in Florida and you'll be in awe with 83 acres...

The children always enjoy butterfly day. We found most of the children are fascinated by the butterflies. Each spring chrysalis arrive from a different area of the world. This year the Caribbean was represented complete with handcrafted fish and coral reefs. It is advisable to take a helper in case one or more children are not as fond of insects.... More

This was a perfect rainy day activity. The plants are beautiful. The most unusual for us were the purple peppers. Only thing missing is soft background music and plants need name tags.

The conservatory had several areas closed off as they prepare for the Fall show so they were not charging any admission this day. It was still nice to spend a 1/2 hour or so just admiring the many varieties of plants on display. The Fall show will start in September and we are looking forward to visiting here again once...

The Conservatory offers a unique opportunity to view plants from other areas in a relaxing setting. They have rotating exhibits and the gift shop offers wonderful artisan gifts. Great photo opportunities here.
