This 13-room greenhouse — much of it built in the Victorian style — features exotic plants from around the world in themed rooms. The orchid collection alone is worth the price of admission. For 2009, there’s also an exhibit on life in the Amazon rain forest. Currently, the floral displays also incorporate glass sculptures by artist Hans Godo Fräbel, whose anthropomorphic figures are both haunting and whimsical. Open daily.
