Krohn Conservatory Showcases Exotic Butterflies of Morocco

by The Cincinnati Team

​​Exotic Butterflies of Morocco at Krohn Conservatory         

Starting April 20th - June 30th, Krohn Conservatory will be open from 10 am-5 pm so you can experience the butterflies of Morocco.  If you haven't been in the butterfly room and experienced a butterfly landing on your nose, this is an event not to be missed and long remembered.  Daily, butterflies are released into the space.  It becomes a lavish assault to your senses...the sound of water flowing, bursts of colorful flowers, and musical rhythms in a setting that will remind you of the marketplaces of the Moroccan region.

Trains, Trestles and Traditions Now at Krohn Conservatory

by The Cincinnati Team

It's a must go!  This year's Krohn Conservatory Holiday show, The Return of Trains, Trestles and Traditions is one of the best ever!  Plan to take you family before it closes on January 6.

The show will appeal to all ages, but especially to train lovers and gardeners.  It's absolutely a treat! Trains wander over bridges and through tunnels and covered bridges, including the favorite, Tommy the Train. All are LGB trains that use "G"scale, a larger size that children can see more easily amongst the poinsettias, amaryllis', cyclamens and evergreens. The size is also perfect with flowers for garden railroading.

Applied Imagination brought all their talents to bear in designing the layout and building the miniature replicas of outstanding Cincinnati landmarks.  Even more interesting is that they are built out of natural materials.  The Roebling Suspension Bridge is made of bark...who would have thought that it looks like stone when placed in this display? Try to identify the historical buildings that have been recreated by Applied Imagination for the event.

Krohn Conservatory Reopens

by The Cincinnati Team

Krohn Conservatory CincinnatiEverywhere you look around Krohn Conservatory, they are working hard in anticipation of the reopening scheduled for Saturday, August 29.  The entire Conservatory has been closed since July 20th for renovations.  It's not surprising that they needed a face lift after 75 years!

The official celebration begins at 10:15 am and includes the unveiling of the Palm House waterfall and bridge.  Also, for the first time there will be a self-guided tours available.  Keepsake posters will be given to the first 100 visitors.

Krohn, located in Eden Park, is considered to be an example of the Art Deco era, since it was built in 1933.  Inside, the greenhouses are divided into areas dedicated to various climates in the world...palm house, fern house, desert house, orchid collection and the Show House. 

The Show House collection rotates depending upon the season.  Probably best known of the shows is the Butterfly exhibit each spring.  I've always wanted to have a butterfly land on my finger and that's a possibility when there are so many flying around.

One of the best things about the Krohn is that is is free, though they welcome donations.  It is open every day of the year from 10am to 5pm, including weekends and holidays.
