“Eh - I've seen much better conservatories and butterfly exhibits”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you really love butterflies and plants then you might want to visit but otherwise you won't be missing much. And I'm 99% sure the butterfly exhibit is only once a year. The place is small, in my opinion, so not a must-see by any means.

“You can not visit just once. It's too beautiful.”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The staff makes this a great place to visit. The butterfly exhibit is one of best. Displays are seasonal. It's clean, safe and parking is free. This is a must visit. And once you go, you'll go again.

“Good for plant lovers”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A nice hour or so can be spent here among the plants, waterfalls, and desert areas. Depending upon the season, there may be a special show; for example, butterflies in spring and poinsettias in December. Set among the hills of scenic Eden Park at the base of Mt. Adams, enroute to the Art Museum and the Playhouse in the Park.

“Butterfly Show”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I love the butterfly show and also seeing the different plants they have. I went last year but not this year. It's a nice little place. Beware of finding parking, however, you'll probably have to walk a bit since there are few parking spaces right behind the building in its parking lot.

“Krohn Conservatory”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Relaxing environment to walk through or even just sit and take in the beautiful flowers--inside and out. Had the pleasure of visiting the Krohn while the Butterfly Show was there.

A very nice place to visit.
