  • This is such a wonderful place to visit on a cold, winter's day. My 7 year old daughter loved it so much that, on the day we went, she visited each of the 4 pyramids at least 4 times, and took picture...  more »

  • A world class botanical garden. The gardens are very lovely and the pyramids very unique. Highly recommend a visit.The integration of sculptures throughout really added to the appeal of the experience. Be sure to see the gaia
  • Great place to visit. Themed pryamid is always interesting. Others are Arid, Tropical, and Temperate. A must visit in the winter to escape for a few moments. Good for young children as well as just for adults.
  • Took out my mom and my mother-in-law to the Muttart Conservatory last Sunday and we had a blast! Their boutique carries some really neat stuff; the expositions are amazing; and food in their Café is so yum! Add to this impeccable service and beautiful nature setting in the outside park, and you have yourself a perfect combination for a relaxing weekend. Needless to say we took hundreds of pictures! And the view of the downtown is gorgeous from where the Conservatory is located. The place is great for all ages and at all seasons!
  • My family has the Naturally Edmonton pass which includes the Muttart, we have brought our toddler three times and have always enjoyed it. The parking is free which is great, it is a nice family outing for an hour or two whenever we have time. It is interesting to see all the different plants and my daughter loves to watch the various water features and fish. The Canada 150th exhibits have been quite well done. There are several nice places to sit and a nice art display in the area between the four pyramids which is a nice break from looking at plants. If you don't want to check out plants it really is not for you.
  • A lovely conservatory. They change up the flora often so it doesn't get old. Prices are fair, and the different biomes are in depth and well done!

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
