The glass house has very pretty birds and butterflies and it has a beautiful tropical setup with flowing waterfall and climbers. You can spend hours looking at the birds and butterflies on a hot summer day. The tiny animals like the tortoise are cute, you get to see them being fed at certain time during the day. Butterfly release was also very nice and kids enjoyed the garden a lot, there is a fountain and a wood house in the children’s garden which was great and kids got themselves soaked in the fountain and had fun.

Really enjoyed spending Mother's Day here. This was my first visit at the gardens. I loved the set off of the new butterflies in the Costa Rica habitat. I will definitely come back in the other seasons to see the flowers. It's worth your time to experience this treasure in Cleveland.

Love this place bright, diverse garden. With 2 huge indoor gardens and the entire maze of outdoor paths, you can easily spend a day here with friends or family. A bit pricey to go more than a few times per year, but if you're looking for a free option (that is a lot smaller but a similar experience), try the Rockefeller Greenhouse in the Cultural Gardens

I always enjoy myself here. It can be a very peaceful stroll. It is very informative there are outposts around for children to play at being explorers doing field notes and the like. There is a nice Cafe there to have a bite.

If you're looking for a good time indoors in Cleveland this is a great place to check out. The outdoor garden is fantastic as well, with multiple different themed gardens. However, I love the two different ecosystems house inside in the Glass House exhibit. There's something to love on both sides.. although I do favor the rainforest side. Once I caught the bloom of an orchids that blooms once a year! It looked like popcorn. Also, who doesn't enjoy being surrounded by butterflies?
