Great time of year to go since they are also installing fall plantings. This is a gem in the city of Columbus. I always enjoy the displays and the permanent Chihuly art. You can also use AAA for a discount on admission.

Grew up here down the road and it is one of the things I am most proud of in my hometown. Every time I go back I try to make it here and am always glad I did.

Flowers, plant life, a few coi and plants formed into sculptures. Very comforting and serene place to visit. 80 year old bonsai trees were impressive.

I recently renewed my membership to the Conservatory just in time for one last glance to see the butterflies. They are in the process of getting geared up for a fantastic fall. It was a special day pumpkins and butterflies!
