It was nice, smaller than I imagined but a lot of different and unusual plants and flowers. It's free but they do accept donations. Plant lovers will enjoy this.

Small conservatory featuring a variety of plants. Free, with a suggestion donation of $3 as others mentioned. It would have been nice to have more signs identifying the plants. Giftshop has a variety of interesting treasures, be sure to stop by.

For the nature lover this is a must-see. The main building has quite a collection of plants. The outdoor park is beautiful for a Sunday stroll. Trees are marked with specie names and well over a hundred years old.
