Built in 1915, the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, formerly called the Como Park Conservatory, is the largest glass-dome garden in the Upper Midwest. It features rooms and gardens which highlight different varieties of trees and plants.
The Palm Room is under the conservatory's tallest dome and contains more than 150 species of palm trees. The Fern Room showcases dozens of varieties of ferns in a hot and humid atmosphere. The Bonsai Gallery features many fine examples of the ancient Japanese art of miniaturizing trees. The Sunken Garden contains an amazing variety of colorful flowers and hosts five seasonal flower shows. The Japanese Garden celebrates the sister-city relationship between Saint Paul and Nagasaki. The North Garden contains plants and trees that humans use for food, pharmaceuticals, and building materials. And the Enchanted Garden is a butterfly garden where hundreds of butterflies flit among the flowers and plants.
Directions: The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory is located at 1225 Eastabrook Street, in Como Regional Park northwest of downtown Saint Paul.
