“amazing public conservatory”
Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory - The Domes is a conservatory owned and operated by the Milwaukee County Park System. Designed by Donald L. Grieb Associates, Architect, the Conservatory is composed of three beehive-shaped glass domes that span 140 feet (43 m) in diameter and are 85 feet (26 m) high. They are properly referred to as the world's first conoidal domes. They cover 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2) of display area and were constructed in stages from 1959 to 1967. Locally, they are commonly called the "three-breasted lady".
We love 'The Domes' as the locals call it. Great for all ages, young and old. There is a scavenger hunt page when you buy your ticket that is fun and challenging. It really is the best place to go in winter time when the bitter Wisconsin cold is driving you mad. Just sit in the tropical dome and breathe the warm humid air. It's amazing.
