The conservatory was beautiful and a place you could visit several times a week, it's tropical and just relaxing. Would highly recommend.

It is supposed to be spring, but unfortunately mother nature is holding back, but not at the Conservatory. Very pleasant a warm. This was my first time to the Conservatory and I can guarantee that it will not be my last.

A visit to Como will brighten your spirits in the dead of winter or on a gloomy day. The sunken garden, full of blue and yellow flowers for their spring show, treats the senses.

I always try to stop in to the conservatory at least once a year, it is a great place to escape winter in Minnesota. he zoo is OK, but nothing special, it is not a depressing as other zoos I've been to.

Yes, they have wheelchairs available. The aisles are wide enough to easily accommodate one.
