  • The conservatory had three separate indoor areas: hot and dry, hot and humid, and normal (not sure what to call it!). The first room was nice and had the butterfly exhibit in the middle. The next two ...  more »

  • A very "Big City" attraction right in the heart of the city. For a very small admission fee, we were able to wander through the exhibits and grounds for nearly an hour and a half. Our visit may have been longer had it not been a 90 degree plus day with blazing sun. The tropical rainforest and desert rooms were very uncomfortable. The butterfly exhibit and 150 year old saguaro cactus were just a few of the highlights. Before leaving, we had the added bonus of finding my sister-in-law a birthday present in the well stocked gift shoppe. There is also a small coffee shoppe on site, but I can't comment on that. Recommend this attraction for residents and visitors alike.
  • Good variety of flowers and flora that is well-maintained. Staff is welcoming and the entrance fee is low with validated municipal parking across the street. Main indoor area allows year-round enjoyment of the gardens with outdoor area available with warmer weather.
  • I always enjoy visiting the botanical gardens. They often have a butterfly exhibit, which is very cool.
  • We've put off coming here for years. Today we finally took the plunge and visited the Botanical conservatory. We couldn't have been happier. We had an amazing experience! Our teenager & tweens loved it. We really felt like we become immersed into each environment. The Mary Poppins exhibit was so nostalgic. We thoroughly enjoyed participating in that exhibition. Overall, the Botanical Gardens are a total gem, right here in Fort Wayne. We'll definitely visit again.
  • Had a photoshoot here and loved being back! So beautiful and the butterfly exhibit is up right now!
