Loved the Butterfly Atrium
Dec 2021 • Couples
Originally planned a visit to see the decorated Christmas trees (which were beautiful). But then saw they also had a butterfly atrium. They have a coat rack to hand up your coat so you can enter the butterfly atrium that is hot & humid (to mock a tropical paradise for the butterflies). It was so cool to see so many butterflies flying around. There was a very nice lady who was available to answer any questions you had and offered interesting butterfly facts.

For the Love of Roses......
Oct 2021
It was a wonderful day. The roses in bloom along with the variety of chrysanthemums and the views are amazing as well. With 23 acres to walk, you need to pace yourself.

This is a nice small garden. The specialty is roses, lines and lines of them. The butterfly area is also outstanding.

Butterflies Are Free

Small yet amazing botanical garden. The butterfly atrium was so amazing we did it twice. The staff were courteous, helpful, and were notch appreciated. The rose gardens were huge. It was soooo hit but was still a pleasant walk with shaded benches everywhere. We'd recommend it to anyone.

Three generation family vacation
Aug 2021 • Family
We visited the gardens and butterfly museum with our son, daughter and 13 year old grandson. The gardens are magnificent with many varieties of roses and other plants. The museum is home to a variety of butterflies. You can spend as much time as you like at both areas. There was staff in the butterfly area to answer any questions. We totally enjoyed our experience there.

Beauty at its best
Aug 2021
Last Sunday after a stay at Hershey Lodge and with discount tickets. We visited the Hershey gardens. We did a 10 mins tour with Guide Shirley who very helpful and knowledgeable about the gardens that Milton and his wife made. So beautifully designed and built. From the fountain, Statues , children's garden,Butterfly Atrium and , roses. We met one of horticulturist who was trimming the beautiful white roses. Weather was perfect for a walk in the garden. Remember make time to smell the roses. Definitely would recommend.

A beautiful garden!!
Aug 2021
Loved this. The rose gardens were beautiful and so many other flowers to see. We have easily spent longer than we did. The butterfly gardens were also fabulous. You kids may not enjoy the butterflies. Many screaming kids freaking out when the butterflies flew by or landed on them. My 16yr old so loved watching them.

Beautiful Experience
Aug 2021
We visited the Hershey Gardens before our spa day at the Hershey Hotel and it was such wonderful experience!! Our first stop was the Butterfly Atrium were we witnessed a butterfly emerging from its cocoon! While we were there we met Michael, our guide. He was so friendly and engaging and he knew everything there was to know about butterflies, their habitats and the city of Hershey itself. Before we left the gardens we stopped by the shop to purchase a few souvenirs. As we were talking to a very lovely woman named Elizabeth (who was also very helpful with my questions about air plants) at the register, Michael saw us through the window and came out to speak! He also informed us that he was the photographer for some of the most beautiful pictures of buterflies that I had ever seen that were on sale. Michael made my first visit to the Hershey Gardens a very pleasant experience and set the bar very high for everyone else that I will ever encounter!! :-)
