  • Only two domes were open, but no reduction in entry...this is out of line with similar places I've visited. The tropical done wasn't too humid, which was great. Explanatory placards were informative a...  more »
  • Most botanical gardens have one defined area BUT here you have 3 different areas for a varied ecosystem. Good signage to help pique your interest and educate. 
  • All three Domes are back open as of 10/29/2016. It is worth the visit, especially when the holiday show is set up.

  • The Domes were pretty awesome. I saw some great plants. Dress accordingly as the Tropical dome is around 80 degrees.
  • Easy to access with free parking and reasonable entry fees. The domes offer a great way to experience different world climates and plants without actually travelling the world. Picnicking is a great idea here as there really aren't many nearby dining options.
  • The place was clean and very nice. I liked that beer was available. I just wish the whole place was open.
  • This is a very enjoyable spot it's a great place to take the family and also an attractive tourist location. If you visit Milwaukee you should check out this location. The only problem I have is that it always seems as though one of the domes is closed.
  • Really beautiful and more interesting then I thought it was going to be. Once the other two domes are re-opened, this will probably be a five for me.
