Krohn Conservatory, Cincinnati

4.6
#3 of 12 in Parks in Cincinnati
A stunning Art Deco greenhouse is the backdrop for exotic plants at Krohn Conservatory. Completed in 1933, the conservatory is home to more than 3,500 species from around the globe. Visit the Palm House to see the 6.1 m (20 ft) waterfall and goldfish stream, as well as many palm varieties. After checking out the miniature wonders of the bonsai collection, head to the desert garden to see aloes, agaves, and yuccas. The orchid display encompasses hundreds of orchids, including monstera deliciosa--the enormous fruit-salad plant. In the Tropical House, breath in the deep, earthy smell of damp, warm soil and the leafy foliage of banana trees, cycads, and vanilla vines.

  • While this is a perfectly lovely place that we enjoy visiting all year round, our favorite time to visit is at Christmas! The decorations are gorgeous and the little trains are adorable! It’s the perfect spot to take your holiday pictures. If you have little ones, check out the barn they build and fill with animals! Also, pay a visit to the gift shop because you never know what cute items you can find. This past year, my husband surprised me with some lovely gloves.
  • Absolutely love our visit. Got $1 off per person with the coupon. I only had to show them the coupon on my phone. They did a wonderful job with all the details. Some visit suggestions. Leave the coat in the car if you can. Places to hang your coat are limited. You’ll end up carrying it with you. Main bathrooms are right up front to the left and right. Nice gift store with things I would actually buy. Worth your visit. Parking is limited.
  • By far among the BEST Cincinnati had to offer! Definately a don't miss! Beautiful gardens, excellent indoor flora, waterfall, butterfly attraction is the best!
  • They have some neat plants but overall there were a lot of local plants. Considering they charged a $4 entrance fee I admit I was expecting a little more. The bicycle theme was cute and added color. It's probably something you could add as an activity to do in addition to something else in town, as we only spent maybe 20 minutes walking around, but I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to recommend it as a top activity "must do."
  • Absolutely one of the nicest holiday conservatory presentations I have had the oleasure of experiencing. A guest to metro area and it was well worth attending to view. Charming living Nativity scene also! Wonderful gift shop reasonably price. All staff encouters were courteous and knowledgeable. Condition of all the flora specimen's were supurb!

Where to stay in Cincinnati
