  • Nice though not great. Worth to visit it at least to visit the Butterfly House that for me it was a wonderful surprise animal compositions made with garbage collection from the sea are definitely some educational even if jar from an aesthetic point of view.

  • Excellent collection of flowers. Nice one day get away place. Good thing, entrance fee waived for Iowa State students.
  • Great flowers and trails. Worth seeing the special exhibits.
  • The butterflys were beautiful as well as were the gardens.
  • It was okay - not worth going. better to find a good trail.
  • We stopped by here on a recent trip to Adventureland, and we were pleasantly surprised! While not as big as some other botanical gardens, Reiman is just a beautiful, well-maintained place to visit. The kids especially loved the butterfly exhibit, and I think every one of them had butterflies land on them. The outdoor exhibits are also very nice, and even though the gardens is very close to the road, you'd never know it walking through it. TIP: When walking along Lake Helen, be careful near the cattails because there are birds nests in there and the birds will likely fly over your head. Or in my case, a bird swooped right by my head, likely warning me to get further away from its nest.
