We were here to see the orchid exhibition on a cold winter day. That was good and colorful, but the rain forest glasshouse and dessert glasshouse made the visit worthwhile overall. We have been here when the outdoor gardens are in bloom and that is generally a better value. Look for special exhibits to get the most out of your... More

We recently went to the Cleveland Botanical Garden to see and smell the flowers. However, we didn't expect to learn more about flowers and gardens. That's what the Garden does! The exhibits are arranged so that you will learn more about the flowers that you're seeing. One good place to learn is the children's section upstairs. Now if you don't... More

Even in the winter, such a beautiful display of orchids inside the building, can only imagine what beauty will be displayed outside on the grounds to walk through and admire.....

Orchid Mania is on and it's a wonderful time to visit the Cleveland Botanical Garden. The Glass House is always wonderful -- especially in the winter -- but add in beautiful orchids and if you got a real treat. Check to see if they'll be doing a butterfly release. There are usually birds and butterflies around, but it's fun to... More

I have been going to the Orchid Mania event for many years. The show is absolutely Beautiful. As you walk into the entrance, you are bathed in beautiful purple lights which highlight the purple orchids. Jaw dropping does not even begin to describe what you will see. This is only one of the events throughout the year. The glasshouse, with... More

What a wonderful place to visit in the midst of winter! We visited between events but it was a fun time. Butterflies fluttering and birds flying. It was nice and warm and those working there were very friendly. We plan on returning for the Orchid Show and also want to visit in the summer when the outdoor displays are open.... More

Next time I visit, I will bring a book and sit to enjoy this lovely atmosphere. On a cold winter day, what a joy to step in to a garden atmosphere. The cafe had healthy choices reasonably priced. The staff was helpful and the indoor parking convenient. the ORCHID DISPLAY was well done and very enjoyable. With the outside areas... More

Have lived in Cleveland area over 30 years and had our first visit summer 2016. Beautiful grounds, spectacular canopy walk and tower climb. Next time will take a picnic lunch and a good book just to sit under the trees and enjoy nature. Could stay all day.
