  • I go here occasionally, especially for weddings, it can be a nice break from the cold weather in the winter and in the summer it's always nice for a stroll, expect to spend about an hour.  more »
  • Spent some time here with a visiting relative and a couple of teenagers. Relative found it somewhat interesting and warm since the weather was rather nasty that day. Teens went around taking photos to...  more »
  • When I saw the structures from the viewpoint above the river I was waiting for something incredible inside too, but wasn't. The place is nice and they make a beautiful job with the conservation.  more »

  • 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.
  • Reasonable price and 10% off with AMA membership. I learned something new in each pyramid and tropical was best for photos of colorful flowers. Well put together with 4 unique environments to explore. Walkways are a bit tight in spots so a massive stroller would be a challenge. There are also nice gardens outside the building accessible for free if you're feeling frugal or pressed for time.
  • Love this place to 'escape' the hustle and bustle of the city for just a few minutes. The plants and designs of the pyramids always change a wee bit and have, since I was a little girl. I've had plenty of holidays where I have looked in amazement and happiness at the displays their staff have created. Always more art installation to look at, this is just a nice, relaxing way to find some peace.
  • Helpful friendly staff. It was fantastic to be able to walk through tropical gardens, rainforests and the desert while outside it was blistery, snowy and -15.

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.
