I saw this in the AAA guidebook so I had it on the list of places to see. At least this was open on Saturday, unlike the capitol building, and is easy to "spot" visually during our walk because of the window like structures where the roof is supposed to be. In other words the building stands out when you're walking around the Mall or surrounding streets. The inside is divided into different sections with different climate environments. Whatever you do Don't miss the orchid "room". We were so impressed that we sat on the bench and just looked around and found many more colors and varities of orchids that we would have missed otherwise. Impressive colors. Maybe an orchid enthusiast may not have been impressed, but we were.
