Home of a wide variety of exotic plants and other amazing exhibits, the Franklin Park Conservatory is a must-see in Columbus. The most amazing exhibition that we saw in the park (and which ends on the 14th of Nov.) was the Savage Garden flesh-eating plants collection. Real and sculpted plants can be seen which are truly amazing.

There is also a glass collection of the famous Dale Chihuly which can be seen throughout the museum. Amazing!

Try to book in advance if you're going with a larger group.
