Surrounded by the lovely grounds of Wright Park in Tacoma's historic Stadium district, the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory is one of only three public Victorian-style conservatories on the West Coast.

The building was dedicated in 1908 and is listed on the city, state and national historic registers.

Featuring a twelve-sided central dome and 3,000 panes of glass, the Conservatory will offer you and your guests the beauty of more than 250 species of exotic tropical plants as well as a beautiful, changing display of blooming plants.
