We really liked walking around the place, seeing the flowers, and hearing the running water. It was a great day all around.

Saw many wonderful plants and flowers on our trip to the conservatory. The price was very reasonable - $5 for me and my two daughters. We spent several hours and could have spent much longer. Was there for the spring bling event - loved seeing all the colorful spring flowers! Other highlights were the bonsai (enjoyed reading about how it's done), and the orchid room. The desert room was also very interesting. It was quite crowded - not sure if it was because it was Good Friday/Spring Break, or some other reason. They do not have lockers, so be prepared to carry your coat if you take one in. They did have a coat rack, but there were no hangers left when we got there half an hour after they opened. Another tip: Be sure to bring extra batteries for your camera. The gift shop does not carry batteries. Our batteries died after the fourth picture. (So disappointing!)

The Krohn Conservatory is located in the heart of Cincinnati's Eden park. It's just minutes from downtown, with a great overlook of the river nearby, and yet you feel like you're in the middle nowhere (in a good way).
The Conservatory is a "must see" and we always take visitors there. There is a fantastic collection of plants and flowers that you won't see anywhere else - from all over the globe! Admission is by donation, so it can be a great inexpensive way to spend a couple hours. During the spring, they host a butterfly show that is second to none. Walking through the giant greenhouse, having the most impressively gorgeous butterflies landing on your arm or hand is almost surreal.
Take a picnic lunch with you and head outside to the river overlook in Eden Park for a wonderful outing. You're only a minute or two away from the Cincinnati Art museum. Put that in your plan and make it a full day in Cincinnati's inner-city Eden Park
