This is literally a cool place with air conditioning. Very educational. Absolutely great for family with little kids. The staff are really friendly and helpful here. Perfect spot to take a rest for a while on a hot day. You can also order some food and have it here. Remember to donate some money to help them maintain this place.
Why would you NOT come here when entry is free? It's basically a simple museum inside the Botanical garden and they have different things on every so often. A nice place for kids, a cafe for a quick beverage and some overpriced finger food. Toilets here are maintained well if you need a better toilet than the public ones outside. Went during the carnivorous plant display which was interesting and beautiful at the same time. Beautifully designed on the outside and inside is a modern museum feel.
