This was my favorite part of Golden Gate Park. This place is really well done with so much variety and flowers I've never even seen before. Great picture spots.

We were certainly disappointed at the small amount of content of this conservatory. There were mostly plants. I had expected more. $9 each to enter and we were there about 10 minutes. Stay outside and enjoy the beautiful flowers there instead!

Next to nothing to see except a couple of rooms of plants, not even flowers!! Don’t waste $9 each in this let down.

The building itself is just lovely, a perfect home to house all these wonderful plants. Each room has a large variety, with lots of information about the plants everywhere you go. I learned lots of fun facts!
