The Muttart Conservatory is unique at first sight. This innovative botanical garden sets the pace for plant science in western Canada and defines Edmonton’s skyline with striking glass pyramids rising from the river valley.

There are some pretty wonderful, strange but interesting plants, trees, flowers, etc. to enjoy! Lots of parking, and you can walk around outside to experience the beauty, inside and out!

This is really good place to come if your into plants. The only downside was that it was smaller than expected. However, now we can say we've been to glass pyramids in Edmonton.

A decent conservatory, though it suffers from the same problem as most, in that it lacks sufficient space to really highlight the plants. The theme area was interesting (Curse of the Chrysthanthemummies - combination of Egyptian themes and Chrysthanthemums) and it was a nice place...More
