Maybe one of the most interesting and best places in Vancouver, the conservatory was like a treat. Found in the center of the Queen Elizabeth Park, the huge dome is home to hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, and plants.

What makes this conservatory more interesting that there are various rooms which feature climactic areas like dessert, tropical forests with animals and plants corresponding to these zones. It is almost like a zoo but much more interesting and educational.

Address:
33rd Ave and Cambie St
Vancouver, BC

Price:
Admission fee for an adult CAD4.80, and CAD2.40 for a child.

Opening Hours:
Standard opening hours are from 10am to 5pm except in summer, when the conservatory is open until 8/9pm.
