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.

  • went with a group such a wonderful place to see the plants trees flowers just beautiful great staff we had a great time 
  • Always a joy to view the myriad species of plants in all the micro-biomes replicated within the conservatory. The yearly butterfly exhibit is an educational experience for adults and children alike. 
  • I have been there with friends and grandkids for butterfly show.Enjoyed it always.My granddaughter is 7,she loved walking thru and seeing all the butterflies 
  • This is a beautiful gem in Cincinnati. Today was our first visit, after friends recommended we drive up from Lexington to check it out. It was definitely worth it! The butterfly exhibit was fantastic, as was the rest of the plant life throughout the conservatory.
  • I grew up coming to the conservatory and now that my family has moved to Cincinnati, it is a must that they experience it as well. Always beautiful, well kept, interesting, and inexpensive. I love stopping in here for a bit, then having a picnic in the park. Must sees are the butterfly show, and Christmas.
  • Got to see the butterfly show, it was very cool and so exciting to see the butterflies just land on whoever wasn't moving. The bonsai room was also really cool.
  • A great feature for Eden Park. Great time to go is during the Butterfly Show. They also have events there. My company had our holiday party and it was a nice change up from the normal holiday parties.
  • Been coming here since I was a kid. It's a great place to go on a cold winter day to warm your bones up.
