Very warm inside, maintained well. Worth a visit. Go check it out. Park close, not the greatest location in Baltimore, near the Zoo. Donations excepted, no other cost. Paid $20 for 3 people.

This is a beautiful attraction to come when you are heading to this park for the Maryland Zoo. Plenty of parking right outside and a slight walk to the entrance. It's really beautiful inside with various segmented garden areas ie: Meditteranean, dessert...etc Not a major...More
