This place is incredible! I have been coming here since I was a child. They have child friendly hands on activities on the lower level. I can see by the construction out side they are adding a new playground and other child centric items. I was especially excited to go today. It has been in the single digits foe a while and it was wonderful to feel like I was outside breathing fresh air without freezing.
This was my first time at the conservatory and I was very impressed. We went for the gardens aglow event and I would definitely go back just to see the flowers and other plants. The light display is one of my favorite light displays. They did a really good job integrating the lights with the plants and the garden. The gingerbread house competition was a fun addition as well. It's a good size conservatory and well worth a visit!
We have been members here for several years because there are always wonderful things to see at any season. The holiday displays change each year and are always beautiful. The annual orchids display is a great tropical escape during the winter. We also enjoy the butterflies in their season and many other programs throughout the year. Can't wait to see the completed children's garden!
This is one of the gems of Columbus. We've had a family membership for several years and get our money's worth. It's a good place to take out of town guests. They keep the exhibits fresh and interesting. The staff there is terrific. It's a pleasure to go there and the park/grounds it's on makes for a really nice walk. in season, the butterfly house is amazing
This place is magic. Wandering around and seeing the plants in the greenhouses has become a hobby of mine, especially in the winter when everything is dead. There are always interesting, fun events going on for families, and members enjoy cool perks like early plant-sale admission and discounts in the shop. I drag every willing friend I have here in hopes that the lovely exhibits make their life a little better, as they've made mine.
