This place is great! Lots to do and a fun stop for a family. They have a cool butterfly exhibit during certain times of the year. Gorgeous plants and plenty of photography opportunities! If you time it right, catch a sunset across the street at Olbrich Park! There's even a beer garden in the park during summer months.
