Nice cactus everywhere but expensive to get in. You don’t get nothing for $10 and it’s very very small but beautiful grounds. You will be fine in half hour so don’t count on that place to be a huge part of your day

I could have stayed forever. I just love desert plants and this place has a cacterium (not sure I spelled that correctly). Just go! You won't regret it. Great place for photo ops.

Lovely experience at the ‘Worlds First Cactarium.’ Small cactus garden with some shade and many, many succulents. Heaven! If you enjoy gardens, this is a must see!
