  • 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.
