We visited this place in December and it was cold. It was still beautiful. I cannot wait to experience this when the weather is better. We were able to warm up in the butterfly garden which was quite nice.

This was a great side trip on a rainy day. The butterfly garden was great. Some of the areas were outside (not surprisingly) and were worth the walk. The kids area was really cute—with great photo ops.

The Butterfly Conservatory was very neat walking among the butterflies and moths. Many different species flying around and some landing on you. The gardens was spread out and the layout was a formal type of gardens.

Moms got in free and it was nice with a lot to see but a bit too much walking for my parents. We loved the butterfly garden. I would suggest a little bit better signage as we had a hard time finding the rock garden

Hershey Gardens is a bit if magic! We went on the rainiest day and we still were able to enjoy the beauty of the gardens. The best part were the butterflies!
