We had a relaxing, slow paced tour and learned how to view bonsai from all angles. Many varieties on display. When a light shower popped up, they had large complimentary umbrellas.

Great little museum that highlights bonsai. Started as a donated sample but blossomed into a small treasure trove of bonsai samples. A must see to get a historical perspective on this art form. Really some ancient and beautiful samples. Note you cannot take many pictures.
