Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • The butterfly exhibit is a unique experience that's fun for all ages! The greenhouses provide a beautiful array of many different plant species as well as an indoor waterfall. Keep in mind that it IS a greenhouse and is very warm inside. Also, anyone with bad allergies might want to take a Claritin.
  • The butterfly exhibit is excellent every year. It's just amazing to see these beautiful creatures up close. I'm so excited to have this annual experience in my city. #CincinnatiProud
  • This place is amazing and for a great price too. We saw lots of butterflies and flowers. It's set up really nice Cool gift shop too. Daffodil show was nice on this gorgeous day too, loved seeing all the varieties of daffodils, that was an added bonus.
  • It was beautiful! Everything was lovely inside and out. All of the employees were helpful and cheerful.
  • The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We got there after they had released 300 butterflies, so they were very active and easy to see.
