The Muttart Conservatory is a living museum and our four pyramids house plants from all around the world. Each pyramid offers unique environmental conditions from three different biomes: temperate, arid, and tropical, and a themed Feature pyramid that changes 5-7 times a year.

Pyramid Etiquette

  • Please stay on the designated paths through the pyramids and walk carefully as paths may be slippery; running and climbing will not be tolerated.
  • Please do not touch the plants or take flowers, leaves, cuttings or fruits from the pyramids.
  • The Muttart Conservatory is a multi-use space where people come to learn and relax. Please ensure that the space is used respectfully and keep voices lowered.
  • Food and drinks are not permitted in the pyramids.
  • Only service animals with proper documentation are allowed inside the Muttart Conservatory; please leave your pets at home.
  • Please do not throw coins into our fish ponds; if you would like to make a donation, please speak with our Front Counter staff.
  • Bikes, skateboards, rollerblades, etc. are to be left outside.

Photography Information

We encourage our visitors to photograph the biodiversity that is found in our pyramids but please keep the following in mind:

  • Tripods are allowed in the pyramids on weekdays but we restrict tripod use on weekends and holidays (subject to change) due to increased usage of the facility.
  • All photo sessions and wedding ceremonies need to be booked in advance (e.g. family, engagement, wedding, graduation photo shoots). Please call 311, who will direct you to our Bookings team.
