    Check out the Thai Pavilion & Garden. It was a gift from the Thai Government and the Thai Chapter of the Wisconsin Alumni Association. Great for photography, fun for the kids. Read more

    We recommend you bike here! The paths leading directly to the gardens see sights such as community gardens and coops. Be sure to save some film for the gardens--the colorful foliage is striking.

    It's worth the $2 to see the amazing assortment of tropical plants in the dome, while the outdoor gardens are free and great for meandering around with kids

    Spent hours here and loved it! Not necessary to purchase tickets to see the butterfly garden, but it is neat.

    Butterfly garden is disappointing & a waste of your time & money. Much prefer the beautiful outdoor garden.
