Steeped in history, rich with tradition, the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) is a living plant museum that informs visitors about the importance, and often irreplaceable value, of plants to the well-being of humans and to earth's fragile...more
I would say the ceiling of the main hall is 60 feet tall and filled with flowers and greenery. Several connecting rooms with different types of plants in each. Worth seeing and free admission. Has a restroom.
I really cannot go to DC without stopping by here. It really is free ( as are most attractions in DC) and it is beautiful. The Orchid Room is my favorite, but not a bad room or exhibit in the gardens. I could go on...More
