This is the most beautiful botanical garden that I've been to. This place is free and worth the drive to West Palm Beach.

Incredible....a definite must see. For $5, you can wander through the five rooms full of mannequins wearing dresses made of paper, modelled after dresses worn by royalty. Just a delightful exhibit.

We’ve been to the garden before but it is always a pleasure to return to it for its beauty and serenity. This time we entered the building to see the amazing exhibit of costume sculptures made of paper, many based on famous old master paintings.
