Beautiful place to walk around. But I think you really need to go in Spring/Summer to see the color.

The Carribean (warmth, humidity, tropical scents, and all)is all around. From the moment you step in you feel as though you have been transported to a place far, far away from the wintery, frigid New York area. Beautiful surroundings, great for walking while having stimulating conversation.
Dress in layers, because there is no coat check and you will feel very warm while you walk along the lengthy exhibit. Another tip, wear comfortable shoes!

I really enjoyed the exhibition. The different flowers were great and the tour guide was excellent. Additionally, I enjoyed the class on photography. A nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I plan to attend again.

This place is therapeutic! The Carribean Exhibit was amazing and I definitely plan on going back for the orchid exhibit in March.
