Even those who are not interested in plants (such as myself), etc. will spending an hour here. There are lots of rooms with interesting cactus, etc. It's pretty awsome and a great place if the weather is giving you cabin fever. I would recommend also visiting the close-by Basillica Church.

I found this a nice place to chill after a lot of travelling around Buffalo/Canada visiting friends. Even though there were wedding planners going around on my visit and other groups, I didnt feel crammed or stopped from seeing it all. Not a huge complex but nice place for a Sunday after noon. I also visited the Basicalla and it was equally peaceful.

Though the most popular times to visit are during the Christmas and Easter seasons, the gardens are worth a visit during any month!
Take a relaxing stroll and forget your worries for a while. Great place to visit with children/grandchildren, too.
