Muttart Conservatory Reviews & Ratings
Funny enough, I lived in Edmonton for 25 years and never made it to the Muttart Conservatory – it wasn’t until I moved to Toronto, that I finally managed to get there. The pyramids are so visible and such a big part of Edmonton’s character, I do wish I had gone earlier. The #1 thing I tried to find online before we went was how long it takes to go through. It was less than 90 minutes to close, and I didn’t want to buy admission tickets and not get the whole experience. So for all the future people looking: To just briskly walk through all 4 pyramids will take you about 20 minutes. We took our very, very sweet time (and revisited one) and it took about 45. The bottom line is the pyramids themselves are much smaller than they look on the outside. I’ve seen other people comment that it was a little pricey for how long it takes you to go through, and I can see how if you expect to spend hours and hours there you might be disappointed. But to just enjoy the serenity of the space, maybe grab a snack, relax in the feature pyramid…it was absolutely worth it to me. I will say this, it was very quiet when we went (Friday afternoon just before close) and if it was busy and you were rushed and had fewer places to sit and relax…I think I would have enjoyed it significantly less. That being said, because we weren’t rushed, it really was an enjoyable experience. Even if plants aren’t a particular passion of yours, between the informative displays scattered throughout all of the pyramids and the very relaxing ambiance, you should be able to find something to enjoy. As I said above, we circled back to the Feature pyramid just because it was so peaceful and pleasant. Laid out like a beautifully cultivated garden with a tall waterfall, you can easily sit on the provided seating and just soak it all in for as long as you want. The one thing I find interesting is that the pyramids close at 5 every day, but you can tell they are set up with fancy lighting and would be gorgeous in the dark. I’m pretty sure they do evening events, but having even one night a week for general admission where people could enjoy a more dramatic ambiance would be fun.
Muttart is a nice place to visit, and bring out of town visitors. They occasionally run cool programs for adults like terrarium classes. In the spring and summer the outdoor grounds are maintained and they're beautiful to explore (for free!)
A true gem in the city. Wonderful to walk through and enjoy year round. Each pyramid houses a different climate. Fun to wander through but they also have free (with paid admission) guided tours that fill you in on some plant secrets.
The Muttart is a beautiful display of different areas of the world and their natural beauty.They cater to the curiosity of kids and the detailed eye of a connoisseur. It's an experience that can be easily overseen. However it is al so worth it
Always enjoyed my time wondering the three greenhouses. Beautifully designed, well maintained, definitely unique.
