As visitors walk along the pastel-tinted displays, they’ll see scroll-shaped signs with quotes from Shakespeare that relate to the nearby flowers. There will be rosemary, that’s for remembrance, and pansies, that’s for thoughts. In addition to these flowers mentioned in Hamlet, there will be thyme and violets from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and daffodils and lavender from A Winter’s Tale. Also carpeting the Show Dome will be hydrangeas, tulips, and Easter lilies, to name a few.
Show hours are Monday–Friday, from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Admission fees range from $5 to $8.

In addition, Milwaukee County Residents with proof of residency receive free admission on Mondays, from 9 a.m.–noon, excluding the celebration of major holidays.
