Phipps Conservatory is always a beautiful place to visit. We love feeling like we are walking into another world when we go there. Love the bonsai room and the miniature fairytale room. There are so many different rooms to explore here and each one is it's own wonderful experience.

My family including young children visited Phipps to see flowers and trains. The 2 year old grandchildren loved the trains and pushing buttons to make trains go. They liked walking on the paths especially in the fern area. Liked seeing fish too the food in cafe is very good especially spritzer.

If you go, go with friends. There were ten of us, and we had a great time, we spent three hours there and it seamed like one. Listened to the Holiday Music, saw train sets and all the flowers and lights. With luck there will be some snow on the ground as well.

Well planned and laid out. Selection and age of the plants in the greenhouses is impressive. Will be visiting again this summer to compare the experience with a wonderful wintertime visit.

Gorgeous arrangements & gardens and the giant glass exhibits were spectacular. Werent as many butterflies as I expected but it is early and more are hatching. Didnt see any blue ones. I noticed what appeared to be Monarch butterfly chrysalis's (chrysali?) but were labeled as the "Queen" but none labeled Monarch. No explanation at the exhibit so Im glad I... More

We haven't been here for many years. We were impressed by the variety of plants and flowers. The colors and layout was great, and to make it even better everything is labeled. If I had only one complaint it would be the parking. Even so I want to go back to see the Christmas displays!

Spent Easter morning exploring! Well worth the price of admission! The game or hunt our son was given to play entertained him!

Phipps is a great place to stroll alone in quiet reflection, come with family to discover new things, or bring a guest to have time to chat. Each new season is a reason to go back - spring is great for tulips, fall is awesome for mums, and Christmas is a tradition we never miss. There is always an exciting... More

Who would think that a big greenhouse would be so much fun? But it is. There are lots of rooms with different kinds of plants. All are astoundingly beautiful.

I had planned to visit. I had not planned on bumping into a huge Indian wedding, complete with bridegroom on horseback and many drummers. It's just that kind of place - you never know what can happen. I went deliberately to visit a glass in the garden exhibit and was not disappointed. Glass in outdoor settings is truly glorious. But...
