Spent an afternoon exploring the grounds & greenhouses - we found ourselves running out of time as there is a lot to see here. Make sure you allow plenty of time to see everything! Highly recommended!

Our family was visiting Montreal and we were looking for something to do indoors, as it was really cold! We totally enjoyed ourselves!!! We stayed much longer than we anticipated. And we are still talking about it. A+ in our book.

We spent three hours in Dec and it was a great experience. I think we walked through about 10 greenhouses. Lots of blooming plants when it was freezing cold outside.
