Had never been here before but I will be back. Came here for my niece's wedding ceremony & it was absolutely beautiful. Left earlier then others & missed the butterfly exhibit which they said was amazing. So next time spending more time walking around & going to see the butterflies.
A must-visit in Green Bay. Awesome botanical garden. Lots of interesting plants and no mess. Interesting sculptures and buildings. perfect planning. Nice place to look at Wisconsin originated butterflies. Entrance fee for adults is $10.
