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

This place was well kept, clean and informative. You can spend all day at this place just bonding with nature. Look out for friendly squirrels putting on a show for you.

I would like to recommend this to folks of all ages....who wouldn't want to spend a few hours on a leisurely walk throughout the beautifully designed gardens that just happened to be in full bloom for Mother's Day!!!! Inside we were thrilled to have butterflies landing on our shoulders and also enjoyed a "Grownup Beverage" at the mimosa bar set... More

From the traffic jams often found in this part of the city, this sidestep off the MLK is well worth a sensory retreat. Experience a spiritual springtime at any time of year here. The range of flora is so broad because they have separated their various buildings into ecospheres, each temp/humidity/light-controlled to mimic ecospheres in different parts of the world.... More

We were looking for something to do when we arrived in Cleveland. We had made plans for hotel/dinners/Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...but got in a little early and had time on our hands. Glad we found this. Beautiful gardens. Impressive Glasshouse. Gorgeous birds...butterflies...the rain forest is awesome. You won't be disappointed.
