  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Been going to conservatory for 30 years. Always has been beautiful not just after the state took over. If you only started coming after state took over then you missed out because it hasn't really changed much.
  • Love this place. Great place for wedding and prom photos. There was a wedding party there when we visited. Full size palm, banana and fruit trees growing under the huge glass dome. Tropical flowers and cacti. And the outside gardens are great for walking.
