Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no denying Albertans are good at building new things. Take a look the glittering downtowns of the big cities. The structures from the past tell stories of Alberta’s booms and busts. • Now you know: Sandstone was the building material of choice a century ago. Check it out in the Beaux Arts style provincial Legislature Building in Edmonton and throughout Calgary’s downtown. • Ask the pros: The Historical Society of Alberta makes sure nobody forgets the good old days and the stories behind heritage buildings. Check out their Alberta playlist, especially on Heritage Day in August.

Muttart Conservatory

Edmonton, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Breathe in the colourful and exotic life unfolding at the enchanting Muttart Conservatory. Each of the four iconic pyramids holds a themed garden representing a different world biome, with species that hail from Mexico to Madagascar. Bathe yourself in the lush Tropical pyramid, alive with delicate orchids, a weeping fig, towering banana trees and huge palms. The Arid pyramid bites back, with its spiky cactus and exotic desert species. Australian pampas grass and Eucalyptus trees are two colourful species you’ll find in the Temperate zone. Inventive Muttart staff create seasonal explosions of texture and life in the Feature garden. Catch the resident superstar, a giant Amorphophallus titanium, nature’s tallest flowering plant, also known as the corpse flower. If all this tranquil energy whets your appetite, the Culina café is a tantalizing local favourite. Savour artisan creations like farm-fresh roasted chicken with brie and cranberry chutney, or pumpkin hazelnut soup. Leave room for homemade desserts.
