“Beautiful little conservatory!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2008

This is a very nice smaller sized conservatory. It's kept up well and the day we were there we were thrilled to see displays of various bonsai trees. One room which was amazing was a room filled with orchids. It's a smaller sized conservatory so everyone could easily get around within it. (those needing a wheelchair would be limited in the areas they could access)

“Worth your Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2008

The Krohn Conservatory is an excellent trip just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Cincinnati.

We arrived when it opened and were able to park in a small lot just out pack. They actually have nice, clean restrooms just inside the front door (so don't worry about having to use some of the portable units elsewhere in the park).

When you first walk in, there's a large jungle walk located in front of you, completed with an indoor waterfall. Off to the left is a room of more tropical plants. To the left, are wings with cacti, succulents, orchids, and bonsai. Part of another area to the left was closed off, as they were changing over the special exhibit.

We spent about 45 minutes here. It's not an all-day thing. We went through at a relatively slow pace, but there's not that much too unique compared to other places we've been garden-wise.

I recommend stopping at the front visitor information office. The staff member there was very helpful and gave me a map of the park and directions on how to get around.

There is a nice area off to the side if you want to bring your lunch and picnic. There are tables and chairs outside there, near a piece of petrified wood.

“Beautiful flowers....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2008

We visited the Krohn Conservatory on Friday August 8, 2008. The displays are gorgeous. We were there during the America The Beautiful display. I hope to go back when the butterfly displays are there.

“Wonderful places to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2008

I have visited Krohn since I was little. It is such a wonderful place to visit. There is no charge, but they accept donations. You can visit several rooms filled with foliage from different areas of the world. It's especially beautiful around Christmas time and the butterfly show is amazing. Highly recommended for any Cincinnatian or visitor
