  • Beautiful! The gardens were great, the weather was awesome and the butterfly exhibit was really neat! They have a lot of places to sit (in the shade) and an interactive children's garden area. There are amazing sculptures made from ocean garbage. The artist has a talent for colors. The price was reasonable for our family of 5, and there were plenty of bathrooms and water fountains.
  • It's lovely in the fall with all the pumpkins. And displays. Kids loved it. Recycle display of things in the ocean. 10 different displays and works of art. And 1000's of butterflies.
  • I came to See Elwood the Gnome but was pleasantly surprised by all the beautiful sights as well as the butterfly enclosure and the various sculptures made out of trash that had been taken out of various environments. Great place to bring the family for a relaxing day out.
  • Excellent collection of flowers. Nice one day get away place. Good thing, entrance fee waived for Iowa State students.
  • From the outdoor gardens that vary by season, to the indoor displays the are continuously updated, to the always wonderful butterfly garden, this place has something for all nature lovers!
