“Beautiful Franklin Park Conservatory”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in a great asset in Columbus. We especially enjoyed the butterfly and Bonsai exhibits. The storybook exhibit was wonderful too. The Chihuly pieces throughout the building added interest to the experience. I would like to visit in other seasons as well.

“Always a great place to visit”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Take your camera and children and out of town visitors. We go a couple times per year since the plants change with the season.

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had our wedding pictures done here. Between the wonderful plants and photographer, we turned out like something off of a "magazine cover" according to friends. The place is beautiful all year round.

“We loved it!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

It costs $12 or so to get in per person but its well worth it if you love this kind of stuff. Plus they have a glassblower on sight that was great! We actually got to sit and watch and listen to him while he was making a bowl.

“See the glass blowing demo”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Beautiful conservatory with the stunning chihuly pieces adding to the different botanical areas. The glass blowing demo was very well done/informative. Lots of great photo opportunities, nice gift shop with unique items, plus the glass items that are made during the demo class. Priced right with a nice discount for seniors and children(discounted up to 17 years of age). We went on a rather warm(88 degrees and humid) day, so didn't spend as much time on the grounds, but the community garden area is quite lovely.
