  • It was a cold, but sunny day - I happened to be in town and wanted to visit. The inside plantings are beautiful - so many things to see - the lady in the gift shop was so nice and very friendly, just ...  more »
  • We'd rather have been there early fall, but a trip to D.M. gave us reason to visit in Nov. The gardens outdoors were now ready for winter but the lovely indoor plantings were wonderful. Especially enj...  more »

  • I haven't been here in years, it was too chilly to check out the outside garden, I will have to come back when it warms up. Otherwise the inside is essentially the same as it always has been. It is still interesting to look around at all of the plants and flowers. However we did discovered the Garden show room. It was cooler than the main dome and they some nice potted plants in there. Definitely go and check it out.
  • Love it! Especially the fun classes you can sign up for- like the flower crown class. My girls had a great time! Wandering through the gardens is leisurely but still fun spotting exciting, new flowers and foliage. The side greenhouse is much cooler and has many wonderful spots to stop and rest and take in the natural beauty of these amazing plants.
  • Quite beautiful but also quite small. $8 per adult is a bit much for hope little time is spent inside. Nevertheless it is a lovely place. Awesome place to take Des Moines visitors. Definitely need to go at least once.
  • It was amazing to see so many beautiful flowers and different species of plants. We loved it here. It was little small for us but that's because we visited it during April first week. Other than that it's a calming place to go and spend your time.
  • Fantastic visit. $8 adult admission for adult non-members. Visited March 11th 2018...even this early in spring plenty to see. Well worth a visit. Will go again soon. Perfect for kids.
