A wonderful respite in the Golden Gate park, very photogenic. If you have time and love orchids and other plants this is a great place to spent a couple hours to admire their beauty and relax.

Inexpensive exhibit of the variety of orchids. Not very crowded, great lilly pond, a bit warm and humid but that's what the plants need. Easy access, no steps, and there are a few benches inside. Very large Dahlia garden just outside to the East.

The conservatory is smaller than I thought it was going to be, especially with the construction in one section, but the butterfly garden exhibit was amazing. You do have to pay around $10/adult to get in but if you enjoy nature I would recommend it.
