“See over 3,500 plant species from around the world”

Krohn Conservatory, located at 1501 Eden Park Drive in Eden Park, was built in 1933 at the height of the Art Deco era. It's what's inside those aluminum and glass walls that make Krohn Conservatory truly special. Krohn Conservatory is a conservatory located in Eden Park within Cincinnati, Ohio.The conservatory was completed in 1933, and named in honor of Irwin M. Krohn who served on the Board of Park Commissioners.  You'd have to travel a good distance from Cincinnati to visit a rainforest or a desert – or come to Krohn Conservatory, Cincinnati Parks' nationally recognized showcase of more than 3,500 plant species from around the world. Krohn changes throughout the year with special exhibits and programs, including the ever-popular "Butterfly Show," where thousands of butterflies are free to fly throughout the show room in a specially-themed garden. You can always visit the famous rainforest waterfall and exotic plants on permanent display in the Palm, Tropical, Desert and Orchid houses as well.

One of the unique events that Krohn Conservatory has is the Butterfly Show. Every spring, they have a new set of butterflies from around the world. My kids really enjoyed it, though my daughter was disappointed that all they did was fly around. I think she was expecting them to do tricks; I have no idea where she got this idea.

My mom was recently in town and I brought her here because it is the perfect place to bring mothers and grandmothers. The plants are all beautiful and the butterfly exhibit was pretty amazing. If you hate crowds, I would recommend avoiding the butterflies as the room tends to get very crowded.

Absolutely beautiful, the kind of place you want to take a date, and it's nice and lush all year round, a nice change of scenery during the dead of the Midwest winter.

Go during the spring to check out the butterfly exhibit, which is far more breathtaking than I want to admit as a heterosexual man.

This place is a must see. It's absolutely beautiful and there's just so much to see. It's a great place to go as a family because the kids will really enjoy all there is to learn and look at and honestly it's a great place to go even if you just go by yourself and need a peaceful place to retreat to for a few hrs.

This place is absolutely beautiful for a saturday afternoon! It's gorgeous inside and there are lots of things to look at. I believe it's in the fall, but the butterfly exhibit makes this place even cooler. I always bring my camera to take pictures for art work.

Very cool place to take little kids, especially when they have monarch butterflies. Also cool to go on cold winter days when you need to pretend you're in the tropics for a little while.

If you are a 90's family movie fanatic like myself (and of course you are) you'll be happy to know this is the filming location the 1993 rollerblading/hockey motion picture Airborne. It's shot all around the city but this is perhaps the most recognizable landmark from the movie. The movie is famous for being the first roles of both Seth Green and Jack Black.

Its a beautiful conservatory with several large rooms full of unique plants. There are two rooms that have streams with fish in them and the atrium has a waterfall with a tunnel behind it to walk through! The landscaping outside is also quite spectacular. Its in a part of town that is near other scenic parks to stroll through as well.

While Eden Park is beautiful, I found the conservatory itself to be overpriced for the size. Additionally, with only two rooms open (one was under construction) it took maybe 15 minutes to tour the entire conservatory.

So beautiful!!!! Eden park is gorgeous, and it's a really awesome place. It's perfect to visit in winter- everything outside is dead, but this place is like a little rainforest :D
