If you are not interested in all things botanical - the conservatory is still worth a quick look. It is amazing to think that this is a botanical 'library' housing about 4000 varied botanical specimens. The orchid display was simply stunning...I have never seen such an array in one place. I enjoyed a quick wander through the grounds outdoors - but it was not the size or scale of other gardens around the world.
Worth a visit - located on the National Mall - next to the Capitol Hill Building - pop in for a quick visit.
