“Beautiful orchid show”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

It is very obvious that the botanical gardens is a wealth of learning experiences, warm and cozy, a breath of fresh oxygen coming out of the cold. My favorite room was the cactus room, reminding me of California where the heat is dry and the vitamin D intake plentiful on a sunny day. The architecture is wonderful, I must give a huge shout out to all the volunteers that spend endless hours keeping this indoor beauty a gem! One of Buffalo's top places to visit.

“Beautiful and unique”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The poinsettia show was awesome. Never knew that there were so many colors and how beautiful they are, The other displays were also amazing and there were several plants and cactus that never saw before. It was worth the visit. It takes almost 2 hours to look at everything, There is also a children's play area, It is worth the visit if in the area,

“IMPRESSIVE GREENHOUSE DISPLAYS”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Our 1st visit to Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens took our breath away we were so impressed by the lovely spectacular greenhouse displays especially the orchids, palm dome, railway, poinsettias. It was such a wonderful escape from the wintery weather outdoors. Admission isn't expensive $6 senior, $7 adult. A definite must see while staying in the area. Don't forget your camera!!!!!
