    Not just a summer destination. The gardens seem to change with every week. Visit often...it's free!

    The botanical garden is definitely worth the 2 USD. Bring a camera, & take lots of pictures. Climb the tower also!

    The Thai pavilion is beautiful. In the winter the conservatory will help warm you up.

    Incredible free garden with beautiful outdoor displays. The indoor garden is also great, it does have a small fee though. Make sure to go to the Thai garden it is amazing.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Last day of the Spring Flower Show is today. Don't forget to walk over the only Thai pavilion in the continental United States as well
