We received a membership for Christmas and have already visited a few times. It’s a nice place to see beautiful plants and flowers and escape the winter temps. The cafe is reasonable and the gift shop also has a place to purchase plants. Love visiting.

Just a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy nature. Visited in the winter time this time but have been here in summertime for a wedding and just as spectacular in any season. Truly beautiful and a wonderful place to stop while visiting the city.

Such a special place with very interesting specimens. However, the Chihuly exhibitions is what makes it so special. A tad bit expensive but enjoyable none the less.

We missed the butterflies since we went in wintertime, but the setting was wonderful in preparation for christmas, specially the hand made glass ornaments.
