  • This place is totally amazing. I took so many pictures and could have just stayed all day. I would definitely return if I return to town. A real joy.

  • This is a historic landmark where you can see the tropical, desert and floral shows all in one place. Each unique dome has different plants from all over the world. They have newly built greenhouses plus an anex where you can rent this place also includes the open space where you come from the entrance. They recommended approval catering service that have what you rent from to use the Domes to cater there. The Domes also holds special events for people to come to. Some of the events that they hold are New Years Eve, around Halloween and others. They have an awesome and popular train show. I highly recommend coming here to see all the great plants that are inside each dome.
  • This was our first visit to your domes..really enjoyed your seasonal display great flowers and the desert dome and tropical dome were so interesting... I enjoyed your plantings and information about them... I never had seen cocoa trees or ginger or cinnamon or vanilla growing and many other plants that we use in our every day life... my husband is into trains and he enjoyed the set up and seeing all the plantings too...enjoyed all your work and after our visit we were hungry and one of your people at the entry area suggested 2 places to go close by we chose Oscar's it was very good and a nice place to go to. Thanks for the suggestion.
