Sci-Fi Dome of the Bloedel Conservatory

Beautiful conservatory and surrounding park with lots of photo-ops. Gorgeous landscaping of native plants outside, with an arboretum inside the dome that is home to quite a few tropical birds.

This 140-ft. diameter floral conservatory dome, built in 1969, has been a popular set and backdrop for futuristic films and TV programs. It shows up in more recent TV shows like "Fringe" and "Eureka."
