I love conservatories and botanical gardens and always make an effort to visit some whenever I move and think that I can get some great photos. I lived in Chicago and the Carolinas to name a few and this seems like they're subpar and bland...More

Been going to Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory since they opened. Shared many happy memories with our children there and now enjoying it with our grandchildren. It can't be beat for a fun place to go at a minimal cost! I always get some great pics!!!

The botanical conservatory is a Fort Wayne favorite with reasonable entry prices and special events that occur frequently. I truly enjoy strolling through the different rooms, studying the various plants and enjoying the calm atmosphere. Good family outing.
