Desert Room

Back to Map

The Desert Room features examples of plant life that thrive in a desert climate. Discover various species from the southwestern U.S., northern Mexico and Africa, and enjoy the bright blooms on these arid-region plants. Above it all hangs the Desert Gold Star, one of Dale Chihuly’s spectacular glass chandeliers.
