“Fascinating Flora!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

My family enjoyed our visit to the Krohn. The facility is well maintained and the admission price was a bargain. In particular, my children enjoyed the bonsai trees and the volunteers who were working on them during our visit. The hydroponic display was a favorite, too. Be sure to look for the pepper plants, banana trees, pomegranites and vanilla pods growing.

“A Must at Christmas-time”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Great memories of visiting Krohn. As a kid my school would visit once a year. A favorite was watching the koi in the water and crossing the bridge. I always felt the "tunnel" behind the bridge was a secret passage. The plants were beautiful too.

Growing up my family would visit every year at Christmas-time. I love the Christmas tree made of pointsettia plants and what used to be a live nativity outside complete with actors. Visiting then is a must. It is a tradition we have enjoyed for over thirty years.

“Wonderful plant selection”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

World class conservatory. Krohn is in a park setting at Eden Park. Spend a few hours and then drive/walk around the park. Great views of the Ohio River and surrounding area from the overlook just up the road. Reflecting lake is just down the hill. All within walking distance of Kroh.

“Krohn is Keen Year Around”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Situated just east of downtown in beautiful Eden Park is one of Cincinnati's gems, The Krohn Conservatory, featuring 3,500 plant species from around the world.

Krohn changes throughout the year with special exhibits and programs, including the ever-popular "Butterfly Show," where thousands of butterflies are free to fly throughout the show room in a specially-themed garden.

You can always visit the famous rainforest waterfall and exotic plants on permanent display in the Palm, Tropical, Desert and Orchid houses as well. Perfect for people of any age!

“Must See While in Cincinnati”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

While in Cincinnati whether on business or pleasure, make sure that you take a few minutes to go to the Krohn Conservatory, located in Eden Park, just minutes from downtown. This conservatory is extraordinary in that it never disappoints its visitors with its exhibits. The space is relatively small, but well used with the most beautiful plants. Going through the exhibits makes you feel as though you are in another part of the world.

Exhibit highlights each year are the butterfly exhibits and the Christmas exhibit. Call ahead to see when each of these exhibits begin. The Conservatory changes exhibits on a seasonal basis. The staff are helpful in answering questions that you might have about the plants that are shown.

This is the perfect place to go and be reminded of the absolute beauty of nature. By the way, they also have birds flying about inside the Conservatory as well to add to the experience.

Have fun.
