The conservatory houses a wing designated for plants native to Mediterranean climates and one for plants native to North American deserts. Miniature trains run through a mock village at the Railroad Hill area, and the gigantic vegetable and insect structures make a statement in the Children's Fantasy Garden. If you visit in the spring or summer, the flowers and shrubbery explode in full bloom.

It's a nice calm place to go with or without children. Wandering around is always interesting and you can find areas you've forgotten or just never seen. If you're interested in eating at the Cafe just know that the prices have gone up but the service and quality has diminished. We've been going for many years and not much has changed in the Aquarium. I feel that if they changed the layout of the entrance it could be more inviting.
This is one of the top spots to check out while in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I visited this place while living in the state and it was beautiful, it's a good walk through and if you take the time to appreciate it all, you find yourself mesmerized with it all. My kids had a lot of fun and so did I, I wish I had more photos to post but they're backed up on the cloud somewhere, but even so, I highly recommend it and check it out. The price of admission is well worth it, I can't remember what we paid for but it was definitely worth it and I will be back again. Welcome to the land of enchantment. Such a beautiful place, indeed.
