The Muttart Conservatory, Edmonton's premier horticultural attraction, is nestled in the river valley and features more than 700 species of plants in 3 climate-regulated biomes - arid, temperate and tropical - and a feature biome, located within our pyramids.
Edmonton's not a tropical destination but this conservatory offers you a plant experience when you need some greenery in your life. It also has a wonderful cafe and arts and gift shop.
It's definitely worth a trip inside the glass-walled garden in the city. They have different sections to satisfy your inner artsy self.
