What people are saying?

It isn't very large, but when an Iowan wants to get away from a cold winter, or if you want to learn a bit about some of the plants from around the world, this is a good place to go. Local hint: check their website. I paid $5 each for myself and a date to go into the Botanical Garden this winter and we spent a few hours walking and talking and listening to the FREE jazz concert playing inside.
Don't judge me because I'm cheap. She loved it!

Great place for Photography! A good point of interest both for family to stop and friends. An interesting Eco-dome that contains many different plant species and birds.

Small but well cared for. A great place to go in the winter
