This is a beautiful indoor conservatory that combines aesthetic floral arrangements with informative displays about horticulture and rare varietals. The outdoor winter lights are especially popular around the holidays.

Phipps is a great experience for all ages. Whether your're going with your family, or just wandering around on your own, it offers a number of beautiful and interesting displays of plant life. It's truly enchanting all year round. Phipps also offers a number of on site demonstrations and mini-classes, so be sure to check their schedule before visiting to see what they have going on.

Phipps is wonderful! I go here for every show. They do five different shows a year, four for the seasons and then an awesome orchid and bonsai show in February. So really there's always something on. Just a really beautiful place, worth checking out if you're in the Oakland area
