Visitors young and old will be enchanted by this custom-built garden-scale train. This unbelievably detailed “g-scale” (often called “garden scale”) display was created by Applied Imagination, an internationally recognized company whose train displays meld botanical design and architecture. Walk past, around, and under miniature buildings and bridges historically significant to Iowa State University and local history, rendered with clever use of natural materials and accented with a spectacular waterfall.

On October 1, Reiman Gardens reopened our Conservatory Complex, which includes the Butterfly Wing, Gift Shop and Conservatory! Fall and winter hours started at the same time, changing to 10am to 4:30pm. Admission no longer takes place at the east entrance kiosk located near the S2 parking lot. All guests will enter our main entrance in the Conservatory Complex. To help ensure the safety of all visitors and staff, all of the indoor spaces are limited to reduced capacities to accommodate social distancing. Masks are required in the building. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in keeping everyone safe while visiting Reiman Gardens.
