  • What a great place! Beautifully done, right in the heart of Tucson. I would never have expected to find such a place, and would have missed it if someone hadn't insisted on me visiting it. So glad I did! Highly recommend for a 'mini getaway', even for just an hour or so... I'll be back

  • We had a great experience here and the butterfly building was just amazing. We are from Phoenix so were a little worried that this would be too small but were not disappointed. We actually loved the smaller feel and it was still very informative. The gift shop is very unique and the prices are reasonable.

  • If I lived in Tucson Iโ€™d buy a lifetime membership! Staff is super friendly the gardens are beautiful and so much to see! Definitely eat at the cafe the food was to die for. They have a butterfly exhibit thatโ€™s out of this world. If youโ€™re lucky the Owl butterfly may just land on your head! And donโ€™t forget to LOOK UP! You may spot a great horned owl being pestered by the hummingbirds. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

  • This place is awesome. It's a beautiful oasis it the Tuscon desert. There it a lot to see. The paths wind through a variety of different gardens and learning areas. Benches are readily available throughout the garden for relaxing in the peaceful shade.

  • This place is beautiful and everyone is always really nice, but I'm disabled and being here made me feel a little less human. So many of the areas have no paving at all, and the places that are paved are hard to get a wheelchair on and off of. I had to be pushed the whole time and it was a lot of work in the gravel, and I felt like I just wasn't welcome in most of the areas. It made this visit into a job for my family, and the paths are narrow enough that I constantly felt like I was in the way. It's beautiful, but it's expensive, and if you need any kind of mobility aid this place is probably not for you
