The Muttart Conservatory at Night

A few weeks ago my family kicked off the holidays by attending a free membership appreciation event at the Muttart Conservatory.

If you’ve never had the pleasure, It’s a sweet little place, a real gem in Edmonton’s river valley. My husband and I had some of our first dates at the Muttart, and I’ve been going since I was a child. Typically, my family would choose a sunny winter afternoon to visit — when we were most missing the green of summer.

One time we’ve never been is at night! Of course, it was scarcely five pm, but it was dark as night. The pyramids certainly took on a different feeling whilst lit only by soft twinkle lights and Christmas decor. It was very romantic and definitely got me thinking about the holidays.
