Time your visit here with a butterfly release. Amazing! Most of the gardens are handicap friendly. Great pace to take kids.

We arrived in time to see Steve getting ready for the 2:00pm Butterfly Release. What a treat for this time of year. Beautiful Butterflies everywhere and colorful birds too. This is a nice place to older children.

I went with two adult relatives. I really enjoyed the gingerbread houses and Christmas trees. I was underwhelmed with the Glow thing.

$16 for 20 minutes to walk around 1 room. It might be better in the summer when you can go outside, but our visit the week before Christmas was a disappointing waste of time and money. The cloud forest room is nice and the birds and butterflies are lovely but there was liteerally nothing else to see. I have never... More

I have the family membership to the gardens. The inside is very nice, almost reminds me of the zoo's rainforest. There is a butterfly exhibit, children's area (with puzzles, books, science type info) and then there are the beautiful gardens outside. The outside also has an area for kids, there is a playhouse, a tree house, paths, and all sorts... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this exhibit. The live animals and biodome is worth the visit alone. I found there was beauty, even in winter. Such a refreshing museum.

Just have to make time to see this exhibit! Just a perfect afternoon time well spent! Be sure to take pictures and have lunch at the bistro!

We knew there would be few floral displays in late September but we were surprised to see only a very few fall chrysanthemums. Another surprise was the Garden's small size, much smaller than other botanical gardens we have visited. We especially enjoyed the Japanese garden and the enclosed butterfly garden where various beautifully colorful butterflies were released at a scheduled... More

We visited the Gardens with parts of our family. There were young people and old people, like me. The gardens are easy to navigate and there are plenty of places to sit down and rest while the younger members explored the gardens. There's a cafe and a gift shop, parking is very convenient. In the area is also the Cleveland... More
