  • This is such a great place to get away for an hour or so. We visited in mid-fall, and it was still enjoyable. There is such a wide variety of plants, from tropical, to orchids, to succulents, to bonsai, and other garden varieties. There are also great views of the Des Moines skyline. I can't even imagine how gorgeous the place must look in the spring and summer.

  • Scenic downtown des moines ❤
  • Beautiful gardens and plants. Really nice gift shop. Friendly staff. At $8 per adult ticket, I'd say this is well worth the visit.
  • Beautiful A Must See... Small exhibit in comparison to Admission price, had expected slightly larger exhibit but still Amazing.
