Milwaukee Things to Do: 155 reviews and 204 photos
Unlike a botanic garden, this is a great place to visit even if the weather outside is frightful. We opted to go here instead of the Botanic Gardens because large grey clouds were covering Milwaukee (they miraculously disappeared while we were inside).
The conservatory consists of three glass domes, one for tropical plants, one for arid plants and the third is the show dome which currently housed seasonal fall plants such as mums and is used for many bridal photo ops.
We took our time wandering through the domes and spent about 1 1/2 hours there. There's a self guided tour leaflet you can pick up near the entrance that tells you the special things to look for, they are also marked with letters.
Admission is $4.50 for adults.
