  • With ample parking access is a breeze. We where delighted to find the Christmas tree display still up and spent an hour marveling over all the wonderfully creative ideas contestants contributed. A must see during or after the holidays. All the domes are well maintained with marvelous plantings. The staff is courteous and the facilities clean.
  • Admission wasn't too expensive. The gardens themselves are beautiful, but I wish they had more! I went there for my best friend's wedding pictures.
  • This unique place is a "diamond in the rough." It's in a very old neighborhood, but still worth the trip. It's got three domes that have three different types of plants. During our visit, one dome was all living Christmas trees with great decorations; another was all about cactus; and the third was all about tropical plants. It's good for all ages, and a great place to learn about plants and trees ... or just enjoy some unique and different ones. Price isn't too bad ($14 for adults), but pricing could be better overall, and and more fair for different age groups.
  • Good old classic for the Milwaukee area. If you like a different variety of plants it's the pace to be. Overall will take less than an hour to walk through. The tropical dome is my favorite where you can see bananas and cocoa growing on the trees. Milwaukee County residents are from on Mondays from 9-noon
  • I love plants and learning more about them. They have themes for different seasons. Excellent!!!
