“Small, but wonderful during the winter!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were there on a cold, snowy Deember morning with snow stuck in the trees and the sun making the snow look like glitter. (Yes! The sun was actually out in Ohio in December!) The lush greenery inside was sooooo nice and warm -- an inviting waterfall, a dry desert, and a humid rainforest. Kind of small, but nice. The holiday train exhibit was great! Cincinnati buildings and the Roebling Bridge were recreated out of bark and other tree parts and looked great.

Hint: They do charge admission and they are not reciprocal with other conservatories/botanical garden memberships.

This exhibit is very interesting. All the the landmarks from cincinnati are incorporated into a wonderful christmas display. Trains are also on display as well as a live nativity scene. Definitely a must!

A wonderful historic conservatory full of tropical plants and flowers. This is a must see when visiting Cincinnati. Have a cup of coffee at the cafe and enjoy!

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We visited over the Christmas break -- it was crowded but not overly so. Lots of various plants, flowers, orchids, and waterfalls to observe, plus a Thomas toy train that ran throughout the conservatory. Good for friends, family, and small kids.

“Holiday display”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

They had a new display for 2012 that recreated Cincinnati landmarks all out of natural materials--Suspension Bridge, Mt. Adams, downtown, and more. The poinsettias and Christmas tree are always such a treat in the winter and the nativity scene with live animals is a favorite for our family.
