The Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory is located in Druid Hill Park, near Route 83, in Baltimore, Maryland. It is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. To 4 p.m. Admission is free, but a $5 donation is encouraged.

The conservatory dates back to 1888 but has been updated as recently as 2016. There are five sections: the Palm House, the Orchid Room, the Mediteranean House, the Tropical House and the Desert House.

I vsited the conservatory on February 1, 2017, and here are some images of what I saw there:

Looks like an architectural wonder. Thanks for the pics.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
