“Magical”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

I love this conservatory. It is beautiful, smells wonderful, and introduces the visitor to really unusual and gorgeous plants. The trees just outside are a treat too.

“Great "get to know em" date location”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Always wanted to get back to the conservatory after having been out the Seattle area for years. Doing the on-line dating I decided to meet on Capital Hill at the Conservatory. A great date. $4 each to get in, plenty of photo opportunities, chances to talk about plants, nature, your feminine side :) There are fabulous plants, old growths succulents, orchids, vines, water features in a greenhouse hot-house environment. All-in-all a very enjoyable meeting date.

“Beautiful conservatory!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

I have been to the conservatory many times and always notice something new... it's a well-cared for building with very nice plantings. A great place to spend a rainy day, and in nice weather, be sure to take a walk around the lovely Volunteer Park in which it is located! Seattle Asian Art Museum is in the same park -- enjoy all three!

“A Lovely Surprise”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This was a lovely conservatory in a beautiful park. When I went there was a mixture of real flowers and glass flowers. There was an amazing Dahlia garden outside of the conservatory.
