#3 of 18 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.

  • Loved this place. Great fun for kids - the whole family - and adults alike. They were having the butterfly show when we went and it was delightful. The butterflies would land on kids, adults, pieces of paper the staff handed out, and often were content to stay on your finger or other object while you admired their beauty. The variety of plants and the conservatory climate were absolutely delightful and entertaining from an adults perspective and well worth the visit. And to top in off, Eden Park itself is huge with lots of attractions for anyone. A very delightful day out at one of Cincy's historic parks. Highly recommended.
  • This has become an Easter family tradition of ours. It is inside Eden Park. They have a gift shop that sells an assortment of items such as refrigerator magnets, small toys, beautiful glass suncatchers, and other trinkets. It is pretty small inside, and does not take long to walk through. The real treasure is the beautiful indoor waterfall that they have. The waterfall makes for a great photo op. You can also see many plants, and learn new things about each one. Every spring, they have the Madagascar Butterfly exhibit, which is an unique experience. For a small price you get admitted into a large closed-off area with hundreds of beautiful exotic butterflies. You are free to stay and lounge as long as you want as you wait for the butterflies to land on you. Stunning.
  • Had a wonderful time with my family. We went for the butterflys of Madagascar exhibit and to view some of the flora and fauna. Workers and volunteers were very nice, parking was adequate and easy we arrived early. Enjoyed the waterfall a lot, it was very peaceful. Cost was minimal compared to other attractions in the area and the website online had a coupon.
  • Wonderful experience as always. Although I would suggest to wait about 3-4 more weeks so there will be more butterflies. Give their nursery a little time to produce the beauties!
  • Lots of flowers and plants to see. Took my grandmother was easy access for her. She even caught a butterfly. Kids will love it too.
