Unbelievable- I’ve been to a lot of these in the US and Europe. This beats them all. Spend a day there. Take the guided tour ( free with $12 admission). It’s wonderful.

We really liked the plants in the Climatron (geodesic dome). Also liked feeding the koi in the Japanese garden (bring quarters).

Wow is all I can say. So gorgeus. We drove 4 hours to see and it was well worth it. Plan on staying at least 4 hours if you are a plant lover. We bought a season pass and plan on returning in the fall.

I have gone several times and its always beautiful to walk around and see all the different types of plants and flowers. The sculptures and glass-blown art pieces are beautiful. Love the museums and buildings you can go in.
