The Botanical Gardens are quite beautiful, and they have a long history dating back to the 16th century. There is a museum devoted to endangered animals as well as the gardens. A great place to go on a day when the weather is fine.

A very nice botanical experience, nice selection and nicely curated in sections. An hour is about enough, unless you're a reader, or with children who may earn more from the (very cool) multimedia features
