I have to add my review here. This is one of our favorite places we have visited. We went to the Butterfly exhibit and the children were facinated. They loved it. They each had a butterfly land on them and it was more than we expected. Worth the money that day!!!
I went here for the Christmas celebration, where they had lights all over, free food, and musical performers. It was a great place to get into the holiday spirit. The plants are beautiful too. They have different events all year long; right now they are doing a butterfly expo. It's a nice place to go see some greenery in Tucson, especially in the summer when everything is brown and dead.
This is my favorite place in Tucson (only excepting Mt. Lemmon). It's absolutely breathtaking. If you're looking to impress someone on a date, this is the place to take her. It's also a great place to get married. They have a lot of special exhibits at different times of the year--like a butterfly garden where you can walk amongst hundreds of species of butterflies. They have more types of exotic flowers than I've ever seen in one place. A very romantic setting.
The Tucson Botanical Gardens is a beautiful place. It's filled with beautiful flowers and trees... very colorful even though it's located in the desert! We had a great time with our first visit here. I do recommend bringing your allergy medication if you have allergies. Thank you
