It's always really cool being able to see all these differen't climates in the middle of the cold Edmontonian winter. The building itself is a bit small but I'd still say it's worth the visit! The souvenir store is also lovely.

It's almost as if you have no idea what the weather is like outside, nor do you care as you are truly engulfed by each biosphere. This was the perfect place to come after a long drive. Recharges your spirit.

I come here often and it’s a year round operation. Yes,even winter. The themed feature pavilion is the best. It changes and is quite a place for wedding photography. It’s my escape to warm outdoors when it’s all gloomy and white and cold out there....More

There are a limited number of wheelchairs. Perhaps call just before going to see if they would hold one for you. Going there is worth that call. It is a most revitalizing experience.
