  • I have never heard of this place before until my wife saw it online. We decided to check out and we were amazing, this conservatory is beautiful inside and outside. There is some plants inside and the smell and the warm air inside reminded of my hometown in Brazil. I will definitely comeback soon .
  • Beautiful, historic conservatory. Staffed by paid horticultural experts and by volunteers. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. Well curated collection of temperate and tropical zone plants of many varieties. Outdoor patio and pond filled with koi during warm weather. Garden statuary and fountains, holiday plant exhibits, and lovely warm weather outdoor strolling areas. Great photo opps abound.
  • Great place to spend part of your day at! Lots of cool things to see!
  • Detroit history. Visiting on weekends with kids is fun. They'll get to learn and see a lot of tropical plants
  • I'm ashamed that it's taken me so long to visit! This place is absolutely gorgeous. It's obvious that good care goes into its upkeep, because the greenhouses were clean and manicured, while keeping a very natural, un-landscaped look. The houses were filled with plants and flowers that I'd never seen before, and were just breathtaking. Some of the trees were enormous - I was impressed how large the space feels inside. My only minor gripe (not worthy of withholding a star) is that I felt the plants could have been labeled a little better. There were so many things I'd love to know the name or family of, but couldn't find a sign.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
