Fascinating

I loved all the plants and flowers. A wonderful way of seeing plant life from other continents without having to travel there. Very nicely done, good tour.

We wanted to take some nice scenic photo's with the plants but was told we wasn't allowed to do so with our friend whom came along to get our snaps. They said we would have to book a private session which costs an arm and a leg! The plants were nice to see but next time I think we'd go... More

Come on people is Edmonton, we don't have that much, most people live here because there are plenty of jobs available. The place is boring lots of plants everywhere, that's it. The end. This place is perfect for annoying people that you don't know what to do with them, after this trip they will feel like leaving Edmonton forever. Yeahhhh... More

It's an OK place to visit if it's winter or raining and you have nothing else to do. Having toured many other botanic gardens and show gardens, I was extremely disappointed in this. I've seen more interesting plants at garden centres. Plus the gift shop was selling cards with embedded seeds in the paper, for the purposes of sending internationally... More

An excellent location with a featured pyramid (autumn) as well as tropical, arid & temperate!! At times in the evenings concerts in the centre area provide an evening of enjoyment!!!

It has only 4 rooms with plants. It looked interesting but we finished visiting very fast. We were done in less than one hour. Devonian Garden in Devon is much more interesting and you can spend a whole day there.

Muttart conservatory is made up of three buildings that are built in the image of peramids. You can go here any time of the year. They try to have themes through out the year, so you can go there in winter and they have and they have Christmas themes and desert themes. Always very fresh and relaxing.

I'm not much of a green-thumb, my experience limited to seeing "that looks nice and bright". I've been to the conservatory during summer time to get 'wedding locations' scouted, each time they have a rotating display that never fails to amaze me. If only they had more fruit-bearing plants as opposed to flowering-plants then i'd certainly would visit a lot... More

The conservatory is a beautiful tribute to plants, trees and flowers of varying hues and scents especially during Edmonton's blustery winters but now music is included with your admission at nine events with local artists. For a mere $45 annual pass, you can visit as often as you like and attend the concerts at no extra cost. Last week, it... More
