Beware of Dinosaurs! Mitchell Park Domes, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

Adventure. Beauty. Romance. People of all ages will find all that and more at the 45,000 square feet of the Mitchell Park Domes, a conservatory operated by the Milwaukee County Park System in this southern Wisconsin Great Lakes city!

 The first dome opened in 1964 and had a major series of updates in 2008. Locally the Domes are given the nick name, “the three breasted lady.”

 During MHLivingNews’ visit to the Domes, as we entered the Tropical Dome, we encountered:

Antoine graciously invited us back to tour more sights in Milwaukee, which he described as a great city of lights at night that he found to be superior to nearby Chicago (Windy City residents, don’t worry, you’ll get your turn).
