  • Had to look hard to find the plant names! Don't think the experience was worth the price of the admission.... been there, done that --- won't do again!  more »
  • The unique domes are on their last legs and may disappear from the Milwaukee skyline unless civic leaders step up and determine to save this local landmark. This is a great place for a family to walk,...  more »
  • The three domes caught out attention and was well worth the visit. The entrance fee was reasonable. The "Fairy Garden' was a little bland but the desert and tropical ones were fantastic!  more »

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.
