  • My wife and I picked up a brochure for the Conservatory. Although it is easy to drive right by, which we did at first, it turned out to be a wonderful visit. The very pleasant and extremely knowledgea...  more »

  • This place is someone's hobby and preoccupation. Parking lot is dirt and crushed stone. If there are not a lot of cars, don't be afraid. A little walk to the remodeled farm house will put you into the...  more »

  • This place is really cool. It has tons of different plants and wildlife. It's well ventilated and worth every penny. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Shout out to Robin. Meet him if you go there!!!!
  • Well-intended setup but could use some new energy and ventilation system. Interesting specimens but none are indicated on any type of chart to refer to as you click away with photos. Staff was informative though if asked questions and one young gal even holds small animals for you to pet. There were not many butterflies but it was March so perhaps there will be more as the season warms up.
  • Was a nice place to bring our young daughter. Quite warm, though, so don't wear your jacket inside. Birds, turtles, toads, and butterflies roam free. Great opportunity for some cool close up photography. Best during the Summer.
  • First of all....go to the "Official" Popp Conservatory website to get the current information regarding the days and hours of operation......I've talked to the Conservatory people and apparently Google is completely incapable of maintaining the correct and current status of the place. It is temporarily closed and will be opening for Memorial Day....regardless of what Google says. This is a very special place in that the majority of the animals are free to run around in the plants and trees....you get to interact with them in a natural environment. The more you look, the more you see. Take your time and let the animals get used to you....they're just as curious about seeing what you're up to.
  • Nice space with lots of cool insects, birds, and reptiles. It would be nice if there were more information about the animals and butterflies, like placards or something.
