Milwaukee is a bustling city with many fun activities to experience. Many of these activities are great places to take children. We have picked a few popular places that are both educational, and loads of fun for you and your children.
The Mitchell Park Conservatory Domes are a great place to take children. The domes are certainly part learning environment, and part wonderland. Designed by local architect Donald Grieb, the domes took seven years to be built, being completed in 1967. There are three domes, the Desert Dome, the Tropical Dome and the Floral Show Dome. The Desert Dome takes you on a journey to the deserts of Africa, Madagascar, South America and North America. In these biomes, you will observe a variety of desert plants, including an extensive collection of cacti. The Tropical Dome contains a vast number of tropical plants and birds from all over the world. The Floral Dome is a vibrant, colorful garden, that has five different themes that change throughout the year.
