This Milwaukee icon consists of three beehive-shaped glass domes, each are 140 feet in diameter and 85 feet high; 75,000 cubic feet of growing space under glass.
The Tropical Dome: Features nearly 1,000 species of plants, including one of the tallest trees under glass. This dome is decorated seasonally with blooming plants, including orchids.
Arid Dome: Features plants native to dry, desert areas with an emphasis on desert plants of Africa and the Americas
Show Dome: This dome changes out seasonally. Particularly noteworthy is its winter display which includes an extensive garden railway exhibit.
Once an outstanding horticultural showpiece, The Domes have fallen upon hard times in recent years. As a result, the display domes are in need of extensive rehabilitation. Fortunately, there are ongoing efforts to save this historic Milwaukee attraction. Visit Future of the Domes and learn how you can help.
