Any Top Tips?

Kids must understand that they cannot touch most of the plants and are expected to stay on the instructed paths..

Need a little extra help?

All grounds and buildings accommodate wheelchairs and strollers and outdoor areas have fully paved walkways, ramps and trails that allow easy maneuverability. Courtesy wheelchairs are available for your use..

Can I get one of those?

    we have been members for about 3 or 4 yrs and we enjoy taking our grandchildren there to learn and to appreciate some of the finer, simpler things in life. The kids love to climb and explore the outside kids area. I love to just simply walk the grounds on a nice day. I often pretend that I live on the fabulous little farm, it is a dream home for me.

    The concerts are getting harder and harder to decide which ones we can make it too, because they are just getting so many great bands, and what a great venue.

    My husband and I just LOVE coming here,...Read More

    Visited while passing through Grand Rapids. Our 12 yr old loved both the indoor and outdoor areas that we visited. Our 6 yr old could have spent most of the day in the children's garden. We visited on a beautiful summer day that was perfect for garden viewing. We loved everything that we saw.

    We decided on a perfectly crummy January day to head to FMG to get out of the house for awhile. After paying FULL PRICE for the 3 of us, we discovered the ONLY thing to see was the Tropical Conservatory. Ouch. Suggestions are to put on their website that there is NOTHING to see at this time of year, and/or, have admission at half-price. Extremely disappointed today. Several of the volunteers said "....yeah, there is nothing going on at this time of year...." One of them said "....the floors will be polished soon..." Ummm, okay. We were there approximately...Read More

We were there approximately 1 hr - if that. Note to self: DO NOT GO TO FMG IN JANUARY. What a waste of money!!!!
