The permanent collection covers diverse historical periods, cultures, and geographic locations, from ancient Greece, Western Europe, and the Soviet Empire, to Moghul India, eighteenth-century Japan, and modern Africa.

Food scene
A classic Wisconsin Supper Club serving terrific food at fair prices in a stylish, warm atmosphere. The service is top notch and unpretentious. If you can, make a reservation for Friday Night Fish Fry. The perch dinner is among the best in the state and only $15 (INSIDER TIP: the perch sells out! Reserve your order when you make your reservation).

Even in the winter, this place is magical, especially if you visit the Conservatory, a tropical paradise. Stroll through 16 acres of outdoor display gardens and an indoor, tropical conservatory at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. In the outdoor gardens, visit the Thai Pavilion and Garden. Olbrich's Thai Pavilion is the only one in the continental United States and the only one outside of Thailand surrounded by a garden. Stop and smell the roses in the Rose Garden, opened to the public in 2005. Olbrich's rose garden features innovative mixed borders of Midwest hardy shrub roses and perennials. Also stroll through other specialty gardens such as the Perennial Garden, Sunken Garden, and Herb Garden. Olbrich's outdoor gardens are open daily, year-round.
