This Victorian building fashioned after the Crystal Palace and Kew Gardens in London still gives a sense of elegance. Part of a park system designed by Olmsted, it is both educational and aesthetically pleasing. Included are dinosaur topiary in a room with a high waterfall; rooms with palms; cacti in a desert room; and much more. It offers a meandering walk through the front rooms and more rectangular sections in the back, making one great loop. There are a few places to sit and enjoy the ambience; and for the studious, the flora is mostly well-documented. Quite a pleasant destination.
