Great place to cure your winter blues! You can stop by and grab lunch at the onsite restaurant or sit and relax and just enjoy beautiful plants!

This is a nice, but rather small, botanical center near downtown Des Moines. It's nice to be able to go someplace warm inside that has nice green tropical plants when you want to escape the cold winter. They have a small desert biome, as well as a tropical rain forest with a waterfall and a small pond as well. My only complaint about this place is that for the size of the botanical center, it's kind of expensive (it's $6 to get in but you can probably see everything in about half an hour or less).
