Our Milwaukee friends took us to Mitchell Park Conservatory for their indoor winter Farmer's Market. Wow, what a great place. Various vendors selling cheese, ice cream, vegetables, soup mixes, eggs, fish, meat, coffee, and waffles! Some vendors are there every week, while others are not.

It has a good collection in the desert section. info on the socio aspects thru crops is good. We have been to the Eden project in UK, so expectations were different. Still, a good visit for the nominal entry price.

I enjoy going to the Domes. I enjoy the nature that they show. Their show dome changes about every few months.

Unfortunately those two (Tropical and Desert Exhibitions) are still closed. They are saying that they might open in fall. The admission is $3.00 for every person until the other two domes are open. The only one that is open... More

Yes, that would be a wonderful time to see the Domes - get out of the cold and enjoy the warmth and color of the beautiful flowers. Great little gift shop, too!
