  • 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.
