It really is a beautiful place to visit. It's $11 for adult non members but I'd say everyone needs to see this place. It's not exciting or life changing but seeing a world's worth of plants all in our own backyard. It's amazing how beautifully landscaped the outside is and then all of the plants inside are so different than what you get to see in the area. Take your kids, you're sweetheart, or just treat yourself. The people are very good at explaining the plants and they all pretty much have a neat story about how it goes name or how it survives or something.

What a fun little place to hang out for an hour or two! The fiancé and I went here for q nice little Saturday afternoon to hang out and loved it! Amazing assortment of plants and even some artwork too. Reasonably priced and the staff was extremely pleasant. Definitely a neat thing to try.

What a great way to spend a day. Simply beautiful. I've had the pleasure to attend a winter wedding there and an outdoor pop up restaurant they host on Tuesday in the summer. Great date spot to take a stroll through indoors or outdoors weather permitting.

I love it there. The membership is worth getting. The people who work there are friendly and very helpful. I have discussed plant concerns with them and they are always helpful. It is also nice to speak with someone who shares similar enthusiasms.

This is a charming landmark, but not worth the cost. This is a beautiful, Victorian-style greenhouse, it has lots of plants, and sweetly themed rooms. The jungle shouldn't be missed. And the cactus room is very cool. However, this isn't a place to take small children unless they're good at the "don't touch" concept, as most plants shouldn't be touched, and there aren't children's exhibits, so it's not as family friendly as it's touted to be. And for $11 per adult, it's wildly overpriced to see what's inside. If you have the extra money and just an hour to kill, it's a nice place to stop at, but if you're looking for a full afternoon or a bargain, skip this site.
