Thank you for your great review and great suggestion to visit the Basilica before or after your visit to the Botanical Gardens!

Great place to spend a couple of hours. A number of small kids were there having fun in the kids center, and they are kept out of the way and do not disturb adults there. The Asian display is really nice.

Holidays are very special at the botanical gardens, but I go anytime I need a pick up to feel good. Each area has a specialization and is educational and surprising! Well worth the trip.

The Botanical Gardens in Buffalo are a real gem to discover. Plan to spend about 2 hours seeing a very large variety of plants, trees, flowers, and cacti. The optional but free audio tour handheld electronic devices make the self guided much more interesting. Many...More

I spent a peaceful couple of hours wandering through the wide variety of botanical landscapes, laid out in an easy-to-follow loop. There are also several outdoor gardens. This was a nice way to unwind at the end of a busy day.
