What you'll do
Guests will be treated to a private, staff-led tour of the Conservatory's galleries highlighting the rare orchid collection from around the world, carnivorous plants from as far as Borneo, aquatic plants, and even prehistoric cycads. All senses are aroused with fragrant aromas, heat and humidity (The Conservatory was named best place for an accidental steam bath), light dancing on myriad hues of green and sounds of the deep jungle. We will allow ample time to linger in the Galleries and peruse the Gift Shop. Get ready for an experience you won't soon forget!
