Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park Reviews
The huge horse sculpture, butterfly’s in March, beautiful gardens in summer, or Christmas trees around the world in winter - truly a great field trip anytime! more »
We brought our exchange student to Meijer gardens to see the Japanese Garden and it was very beautiful. I'm looking forward to see it grow more in the years to come. more »
My first experience at this wonderful institution, but most certainly not the last! It was a long drive, but well worth making a day out of it. Come early; otherwise, the lines will be long! A lot of people brought their children, and there was even an area specifically for them. The cafeteria area had good food and (most importantly) coffee--I think I had 3 or so flavors to choose from. The butterflies were, of course, one of the most popular attractions; a must see.
We have gone to see butterflies for 10 years. We love it and so do the kids. Worth the price. Very nice inside but always busy at butterfly time. Expect a super long line if your not early. Even if you are expect to walk from your parking spot. Even handicap is a hike. But everyone is always friendly. A great day trip.
