  • I've been to the Muttart Conservatory twice. Once for the regular exhibit, and once for the annual Light Walk that is held between November and January. Both times were enjoyable and it is nice to have such an attraction in the heart of this city. The pricing is a little steep, however there are discounts for students, free days throughout the year, etc. The area the conservatory is located is usually beautiful with plenty of garden paths, and trees. Recently, with the construction of the LRT Valley Line, a lot of that has been tainted. Definitely still worth visiting, though. Staff is very friendly and the cafe located inside serves great coffee, tea, and some specialty drinks.
  • I along with my family and friends recently went there. It was really awesome visit. Many tropical plants of the pyramid reminded me of the place where I grew. I was able to see many species of flowers, plants and get more information about them. My 2 yrs little girl also enjoyed the place a lot. She was enticed by those beautiful colourful flowers. She even seemed enjoying the tropical plants . Of course, we had lots of pictures taken oviously for Facebook posts 😉... We spent about 2 and half hour there which was great.
  • The four pyramids of the muttart conservatory are each a world of their own places. Three are the same year round and the last is the feature. When I went it was the Chinese New year exhibit. Beautiful plant life and a great restaurant. They have a gift shop but I didn't explore it today.
  • Wonderful place to relax and take in the plant life that surrounds you. Great food to be savoured as well. Check out the gift shop too.
  • A beautiful place to visit when you want to visit somewhere far away for cheap. There are 4 pyramids with different themes. Tropical, arid, temperate, and a show pyramid that changes throughout the year. The gift shop has neat gift ideas and Culina, the resident eatery, can make you a cappuccino or offer a glass of wine with your lunch.
