“Beautiful conservatory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

That is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the city. Beautiful plants exposition where you can wander for hours or sit down in a beautiful coffee shop under the many exotic plants. They have a lot of different expositions ( not only plants but cats,arms etc).

“Fun and not many foreign tourists.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

We had and afternoon free in Poznan and decided to head out to the Palm house. It's a nice collection of tropical plants, exotic plants and cacti that's distinctly not what you'll find outside in Poznan or the countryside. It makes for some interesting trip photos - as people wonder where in Poland you were with palm trees.

Aside from the overgrown trees and cacti, bending over to fit into the huge greenhouses, and trees and vines that grow across the walkways, it was a fun place to spend time with normal Polish families on a day out.

“A bit of jungle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

The Palm House in the Wilson Park consist of 9 pavillions, each of them with another kind of vegetation zone (aquarium, acquatic plants, temperate, tropical, subtropical, succulents, rainforest, xertophytes and savannah). In some parts, it feels like being in the jungle, there are so many big tropical plants and trees, and their branches are hanging over us. Sounds of birds (live parrots) help to create the atmosphere.
Their website says that the Palm House hosts 17 thousand plants of 1100 species, but this is just numbers. To understand how special this place is, one just needs to go there. Exhibitions of exotic plants (like orchids or succulents) take place there from time to time, but even without an exhibition one can spot orchids or other flowers in bloom. I love to visit this place in early in March. Outside there is usually still no Spring, but inside orchids start blooming and there is a tropical summer...

The place charges for entry, 7 zl, children over 3 - 5 zl (free entrance for youngers, There is a small fee for the cloak-room and toilet, 1 zl, Amateur photographing and video filming is free of charge.

The Palm House is in a nearby Woodrow Wilson Park, not far from my home. Still I feel ashamed to say that I cannot remember it it has wheelchair acces or not. For sure, there is no stairs, everything is on the ground level (except the Park's old bomb shelter but this is actually a separate facility).

“Pleasant place for a Sunday stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Poznan Palm House is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll. There are plants from different continents, the sounds of live birds, noise of water and aquariums full of exotic fish.
The unique atmosphere of cafes creates lush vegetation, a permanent exhibition of sculptures, minerals and souvenirs from the trip. The specialty coffee homemade pastries are baked according to traditional recipes. Enjoy a special appreciation: cheesecake, apple pie, walnut cake.

“Interesting park with incredible greenhouses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2011

We learned of this sort of Kew Gardens quite by chance. Nice grounds as a park but the real joy of the place are the greenhouses of tropical plants and animals and fishes. We paid just PLN 7 (about £1.50) to go in. Many of the trees we had seen in their native countries but the cactus collection was fantastic. The location is about 2 tram stops on the exhibition side of the river
