After you have visited the great Tacoma attractions like Point Defiance Park, Zoo and Aquarium, the outstanding museums and the waterfront walk, visit this little diamond in Wright Park. This is a volunteer-maintained, low budget enterprise that depends on the modest, but not cheap, entry fee and donations. In comparison with some of the largest such structures, old and new, this one is at the smallest end in size and exhibits, but the building is worth exploring for its history and construction, and the exhibits are top quality, featuring very old large tropical growths as well as small new varieties of blooming tropical. Their orchid collection is special. As others have stated, this is a quiet, contemplative place, especially great since one can walk here from the hospital district and leave any worries and cares that may have brought into your life for a little while.
