This place is someone's hobby and preoccupation. Parking lot is dirt and crushed stone. If there are not a lot of cars, don't be afraid. A little walk to the remodeled farm house will put you into the cramped gift shop and entrance. Once inside...More

There are many conservatories out there worth your money. It was small and had a bad odor. It was okay for something to do, but personally not worth $12 and an out of the way trip.

A bit whimsical and I enjoyed the butterflies, birds and other creatures. It's small and I would not recommend it for families with young children.
