  • The greenhouses were well worth the visit. They were beautiful. The back outside gardens with geometric shaped flower boxes filled with black gravel, with a few odd, very unhappy looking plants, were not aesthetically pleasing. It seemed as if no thought had been put into creating harmonious landscaping, but that a plant lab experiment had gone wrong and the plants had been planted in a hurry to survive as best as they could. The moss garden and tree gardens in the front, however, were well thought out, with the plants well cared for.
  • When it's summertime like it was when I was here there's a lot of flowers to see and you can see them for free (from outside). Very beautiful, lovely place. There is flowers and old trees at out and many kinds of flowers at inside. Both nice experience. You need to pay visiting at inside. It would be nice if there would be exotic flower shop here also? Some rare flowers to buy?
  • This place has a few different themes you can follow. One of them is evolution path concerning development of the flora. There are maps and explanations available, and per usual in Finland, they are in Finnish, Swedish and English. The best of all are Finnish guided tours in the outdoor garden. Notice that greenhouses close earlier than the outdoor garden.
  • Very disappointing. The plants are planted in gravel beds. A lot of them have died or disappeared. It has a very clinical feel to it. Very few plants are flourishing. It is expensive to go in the glass house which is quite small. The rest of the gardens are free and the cafe is nice. It is a long walk from the train station. It is well labelled if you are a plants person.
  • Freely accessible park outside the glasshouses. Multiple rooms in the glasshouses with different themes like 'Rain Forest' or 'Desert Plants' etc. (However there is a small entrance fee to get inside the glasshouse. There is a student discount!).
