The home of Aquatic plants

City Hall / Civic Center

With a brand new $4 million program of horticultural exhibits and floral displays, the Conservatory joins a distinctive circle of modern American horticultural museums that are on the cutting edge of botanical interpretation and conservation education.

In this spectacular museum of living plants, immersive displays in five galleries engage visitors physically, intellectually and emotionally. These splendid displays not only delight, but deliver a moving message about the rapid changes in tropical habitats worldwide and efforts currently underway to conserve these special places.

As you move from room to room you will enter the world of aquatic plants where leaves can grow up to 6 feet in diameter.
