The Conservatory was the vision of Herbert and Nicole Wertheim, who donated funds for the construction of the Conservatory and the Auditorium in 1990.
You can learn about tropical plants any time by visiting the window “clings” on the south face of the Wertheim Conservatory. The educational posters cover important groups of tropical plants, tropical crops, and, in the newest cling, pollination. Read Our Window Clings
