About half of the Botanical Garden is wonderful, with rooms containing tropical and desert habitats set up in an interesting way. There is also a koi pond, which is lovely. The other half of the Botanical Garden is boring rows of plant collections. Best to save this trip for winter, when you will enjoy the break from the cold. During the summer, it becomes almost too warm to enjoy the experience. Also, watch out for the lady in the gift shop who will begin to lecture you about the plants for sale without asking your level of experience or if indeed you have any questions in the first place. She will just blab on and on all the while jabbing her finger in your direction. You will get not even a moment of peace to consider which plant you might like to purchase. Instead, I decided to leave empty-handed and took one star off my rating.
