  • Beautiful place with many species of plants. varied ecological niches, clean and organized. Wonderful Research Center, lab, Museum. Fantastic place. It couldn't finish. We will fight to continue.

  • We Portoalegrenses, when we travel to other States, visit the Botanical Gardens located in cities (e.g., Rio de Janeiro and Curitiba), and we ended up leaving to attend what's right in front of us. Resident of Porto Alegre for over 10 years, only now I was visiting, but there's that saying: better late than never. Excellent choice to spend with the family and take a mate in place with green. Could be a little more careful, but nothing to be desired. Tickets per person (adult), R$ 6.00, plus the cost of R$ 11.00. Well worth going, not to mention the local security.
