Like Fort Edmonton Park , the Muttart Conservatory is operated by the city and is a top city attraction. Over 700 varieties of plants from three very different climates are on display: arid, temperate, and tropical species. Seasonal displays are presented in the show pavilion, and school visits are actively encouraged. Facilities can be rented for special events, business conferences and weddings. Catered banquets are also available.
The Muttart Conservatory is a great place to take your kids... but if ypur looking for someplace for adults the "leafy greens" really aren't all that interesting. The plants all looked the same to me. All in all i think that if you want to go somewhere that piques your interest,go somewhere else.
THIS PLACE IS AWSOME! I THOUGHT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!! I REMEMBER IT IN THE LATE 77 AND STILL LOOKS GREAT. THE WORK OF ART OF THE BUILDING WITH IT'S PRETTY FLOWERS AND PLANTS IT'S SHARP EVEN AT NIGHT WITH THE LIGHTS ON YOU CAN SPOT IT FROM FAR AWAY AND I'M FROM THE STATES.STATE OF WISCONSIN I GIVE IT FIVE STARS. YOUR A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!! PETER A MEMORIES OF MY SUMMER VACATIONS
My husband and I were married there in July 2005. It was absolutely gorgeous. We were married in the Tropical Pyramid and had the reception in the Atrium. The best value is to book for an evening event (which is currently $788 CDN) and then you decide when and where to do everything. We were able to get in the Muttart at 6:00pm when it closed to decorate for the reception. We were married at 7:30pm and had the reception immediately following. We had a lot of out-of-country guests and having exclusive use of all 4 pyramids was great. We left around midnight but could have stayed until 1:30 am. This is a great place to get married. One word of advice... book early, at least a year in advance.
I like botanical gardens, so for me this was worth the visit.
However, the displays are not extensive, so a less interested visitor might not feel they got their money's worth.
The architechture (pyramid shaped greenhouses) is very appealing, and the location (river valley) is also very nice for an outdoor stroll.
