I was so excited to visit the Conservatory in Volunteer Park. Whenever I come to Seattle I am always in awe of the beautiful flowers in and around the city, so I expected the Conservatory to be extraordinary. I must say that I was a bit disappointed. I have visited the conservatory in Lincoln Park (Chicago) many times and the Volunteer Park Conservatory didn't compare in the least. It costs $4 for an adult day pass and there are really only 4 rooms and a gift shop - it was a tenth of the size of the one in Chicago and the one in Chicago is free. But, I did pay the admission and tour. Beautiful flowers, but not what expected. The exterior of the building and the grounds and flowers surrounding the Conservatory are lovely.
