Bring kids; visit this fantastic botanical garden, and next to it, go to insectarium (kids and adults love it !), and Biodome which is kind of Tropical Adventure. This is a full day activity.

My wife and I visited on a beautiful day. We walked the gardens and really enjoyed all that it had to offer. We spent a couple of hours there and would visit again.

We visited when it was still too cold for outside plantings to be in bloom and the indoor exhibits were lovely but definitely want to go back when then plantings were blooming. The butterfly house was very lovely!

Spent an afternoon exploring the grounds & greenhouses - we found ourselves running out of time as there is a lot to see here. Make sure you allow plenty of time to see everything! Highly recommended!
