As you pass through the entryway gates at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, you'll see the unmistakable Art Nouveau greenhouse that resembles the 19th-century Crystal Palace in London. Fountains, ponds, and waterfalls intersperse the gardens planted in French style. Tropical plants, many of which are rare, reside in the greenhouse alongside palms and native plants. The Botanic Museum provides a collection of native flora and botanical species from the Atlantic forests, which attracts researchers from all around the world.
Strolling along the paths brings you past native forest trees, gardens with native flowers, and 114 sculptural works, like "A Mãe" (The Mother). The Museum of Franz Krajcberg behind the greenhouse features the artist's collection and other artistic works including sculptures, art, and reliefs, as well as publications, photographs, educational materials, and videos. Walking across the wooden bridge towards the other side of the park brings you to the large herbarium in the Botanical Museum housed in a timber building. Surrounding the building is a lake, a library, an auditorium, a theater, an exposition area, tennis courts, and a cycling track, to name a few of the attractions. Children especially love to peer into the pond out front to identify carp, herons, teal, and turtles.

Calm beautiful place to get some thoughts going. Greenhouse still in reforms but it's an impressive sight nonetheless. EDIT: The greenhouse is open again!
Amazing and well conserved garden, reminds the European style. I When I went there the glass house was closed due restoration. Still it's worth going there and spend some time, do a picnic or walk around. The senses garden is a nice and totally free experience inside the botanical garden, it's worth passing by.
