I love this little corner of Tacoma. It is great in all seasons, but especially wonderful after a string of cold and dreary days. They also have a summer story time for kids.

Seymour Botanical Conservatory is a wonderful place to visit on a cold and dreary day. It's like stepping into a tropical island with all kinds of exotic flowers.

I was surprised by how many plants and how much diversity we found in the conservatory. There's so much to see, and you can take a walk in one of the areas best urban parks afterward.

I have been visiting this place for over fifty years and I am always awe-struck at the gorgeous floral displays. It is one of the most relaxing, peaceful places one can visit. I love it.

This Conservatory is very special to us because we married there. The staff was so very nice to open it to us and our family and friends on a Monday when they are usually closed. It was right after Easter so the Conservatory was filled with spring flowers blooming. We could not have wished for me. Thank you for making... More

Yes, they have a small "Hand of Buddha" growing there, and it is cool to see one. They also have a "Corpse Flower" starting up. Check back from time to time with them to see when it blooms. The date taken is in the photo I posted. Small location, but very well stocked. Very tranquil.

Much smaller than other botanical conservatories I have visited, but well worth the visit. No crowds, and I got to park right out front. It's like your own charming little tropical garden. Give it 30 minutes if you like botany.

A friend and I stopped 2 days ago. As noted in reviews, the space is quite limited. It is an area full of beautiful and interesting plantings. There is a small gift shop and currently several art installations which add some color and texture diversity. There is no entrance fee although donations are helpful for the organization. It is a...

Part of the Wright Park property, this lovely little conservatory is a pleasant place to visit. No admission fee, but recommend a $3 donation per person. They change the displays in the entry, with the season. Not nearly as big as the conservatory in Seattle, but worth exploring none the less.
