Nice break from the traditional tourist areas and museums. It isn't large but it has a nice variety with good signage. A pleasant place to enjoy and review your trip.

Yes, they even have a dear little Wollemi pine tree from Australia just as you walk in! So as an Aussie I have to like this place. It is small but what they do have are some very interesting planting’s and trees, especially this one!...More
