Marjorie McNeely Conservatory

The Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park opened in 1915 and remains one of the most historic living museums in the country. It's steamy glass dome is a perfect escape from a dreary February morning. This elegant conservatory is a celebration of the living earth. Abundant collections of flowers, palms and ferns overflow from the indoor garden rooms. My favorite is the Sunken Garden ... bursting with spectacular color!
