Animals in nativity scene, outside of the sheep, had absolutely no room. Disgusted. Donkey and cow have enough room to stand and lay—that’s it. Full review by manna_maxwell

More Than 3,500 Plant Species From All Over the World
The Irwin M. Krohn Conservatory is a conservatory located in Eden Park within Cincinnati, Ohio in the United States. History The conservatory was completed in 1933, replacing smaller greenhouses that had stood in Eden Park since 1894. Originally known only as the Eden Park Greenhouse, in 1937 it was renamed in honor of Irwin M. Krohn, who served as Board of Park Commissioner from 1912 to 1948. The architect firm Rapp & Meacham designed the conservatory in the Art Deco style, in the form of a Gothic arch. A 1966 hailstorm caused extensive damage to the conservatory, and the firm of Lord & Burnham was called to restore it. The original wooden sashes were replaced with durable aluminum. Collection It contains more than 3,500 plant species from all over the World, with principal collections as follows: Bonsai Collection - a collection of bonsai trees from the conservatory itself, the Bonsai Society of Greater Cincinnati, and private individuals. Desert Garden - succulents and cacti including agaves, aloes, crassulas, and yuccas, as well as cereus, opuntia, and pereskia. Floral Display - home to six seasonal floral shows, with a permanent citrus tree collection of Orange, kumquat, giant Ponderosa lemon, and grapefruit. Orchid Display - approximately 75 blooming orchids at any time, from the conservatory's collection of thousands of orchids encompassing 17 genera. This display also includes a Monstera deliciosa. Palm House - a 45-foot high central house with palm trees, rubber trees, and bananas, shrubby plants, and ground cover, as well as a 20-foot waterfall[9] with a goldfish stream. Epiphytic bromeliads, orchids, and ferns grow in many of the trees. Tropical House - a large variety of ferns, both terrestrial and epiphytic; cycad, bromeliad, and begonia collections; and important economic plants including a cacao tree, Pomegranate, vanilla vine, and dwarf banana.
