The Muttart Conservatory is unique at first sight. This innovative botanical garden sets the pace for plant science in western Canada and defines Edmonton’s skyline with striking glass pyramids rising from the river valley.

We saw 3 of the 4 pyramids as one was closed. It was nice to wander through each pyramid picking out plants that we liked. We had a blt in the cafe with a drink.

Three beautiful climatic zones and the flowers and plants that grow there. Well labelled plants in a lovely environment to walk around and enjoy in the domed structures.

This is a must do when visiting Edmonton. In fact some visitors come specifically to Edmonton to visit these pyramids. The conservatory offers diverse programming for all ages so check their website before you visit.

Amazing views of the city above the pyramids. Attractive both inside and out. Each pyramid features a different climatic zone. Has a nice Cafe and gift shop where you can buy items from local artists.

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.
