It was a cold day that we decided to escape to the sights and smells of the Muttart. We enjoyed the visit, my second time. The only negative I have is the signs that tell the species of plants are sporatic and we had to guess on others that were not obvious to their placement.

My husband and I got married at the Muttart (in the tropical pyramid) in December. It is a great place for a winter wedding! It felt like we truly were somewhere warm and tropical. We had a small family wedding, and it was so perfect. No decorations needed! The tropical pyramid is so lush with plant-life, it was gorgeous. There... More

If the winter weather is too cold, the rain is pouring down or if global warming is making you sweat, there is a wonderful refuge for you in Edmonton's river valley. It is the beautiful and architecturally appealing Muttart Conservatory. Glass pyramids shelter wonderful botanical gardens, different artificial climates and hundreds of exotic plant species. It is a wonderful and... More

We decided to go here while we're visiting family in Edmonton and as a Horticulturist I was happy we did. I wasn't sure what to expect from these Pyramids but it was a nice way to spend a few hours in Edmonton. Take the tour as the people will give you some extremely insightful information regarding some of the plant... More

A selection of plants and flowers that remind us of the beauty of nature. At Christmas the "pyramids" are lit with Christmas lights

The Muttart is my go-to place if I need a breath of summer in the midst of some of our dreary winter days. Set along the river valley, these pyramids offer visitors a chance to explore plants from a number of different climates while also offering many lovely spots just to sit and think. The attached bistro boasts a wonderful... More

It's quite a neat place and the grounds are nice. Various exhibitions are interesting.....but it lacks oomph! Feels a bit tired and needs to be invigorating All in all a good way to spend 3-4 hours max.

Wonderful experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the four different biomes. We did not participate in the free tour but used the self-guided binders located just inside each entrance. It gave some fun and interesting added information that you wouldn't get just reading the signs.

One of my go to favourite spots when I need a lift or a GIFT to myself meditate in the Tropical Pyramid. A Great place to experience Peace in Nature any season in Edmonton. Three of the pyramids are basically the same tropical, arid, temperate climates. These are basically the same except they will change with the flowering of the... More

The Muttart is a wonderful rainy day or winter day, first time visit or a good item for in-laws from out of town. I've had a "Valentine's" dinner there, taken advantage of special events. It will stir conversation ONCE - second time, not enough changes except for the "special" 4th pyramid which isn't enough of a change on its own.... More
