Families will love to stroll through the indoor and outdoor gardens at the Botanical Conservatory. At the Kids Discovery Garden, the little ones can enjoy reading books, doing arts and crafts or playing board games and scavenger hunt type games through the conservatory. There are interactive exhibits found throughout as well, so little hands will always have something to discover. There are four seasonal exhibits throughout the year and the butterfly house is always popular in the spring time. Kids will love to visit with the butterflies as they fly around the exhibit landing on flowers or your hand. Then it’s off to the tropical garden or the desert to explore the waterfalls, goldfish ponds and cacti.

$5 for adults, $3 for children ages 3 to 17, free for children 2 and under.
