The three domes offer something for everyone who enjoys plant specimens. It is an oasis during the winter, and the seasonal displays are usually fun for children and adults alike.

These 1960's geodesic domes recently underwent a renovation and continue to fascinate and delight visitors with 2 biomes ( desert & tropical) and a rotating flower show dome. LED lights were added that are designed to coordinate with music each evening. Our favorite shows are the Easter show...wonderful blooms and smells after our long winter, and the train show that we take our grandchildren to. Private parties can be held here and often there are live bands that play weekly through the winter.

What isn't to like about the Mitchell Park "Domes"? These three geodesic domes offer two permanent exhibits: A tropical rainforest and a desert collection. When Milwaukeeans get cabin fever in February, there's nothing better (short of a plane ticket) than visiting the Domes.

The third "show dome" has rotating exhibits, from model trains to domestic plants.

Have been to the "Domes" repeatedly since childhood, for wedding photos, and to visit with my son for a model train show. It is the best place to take in blooms especially during the winter.

I liked the tropical dome best, but the Desert and general plant displays were also good. We had a little troulble finding it since our GPS wanted us to drive thru Potowatami Casino. Not downtown.
