It’s a very interesting structure that houses a tropical rain forest environment. The Climatron was the first geodesic dome greenhouse. It was designed by Thomas C. Howard of Synergetics, Inc in 1959. The original plexiglas was removed and a new dome was built in 1990. The original aluminum dome structure still stands. I also show some amazing glass sculptures by Swedish-born sculptor, Carl Milles, that have been placed throughout the area. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

    Weird fact. Treyarch based the zombie map moon off this exact place.

    Nice to see this structure still being kept up after nearly 60 years. If anyone want to see a film of it taken in 1960…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_ZBUaUoZFc

    In the winter – that place is fantastic. A tropical bubble in the middle of the Missouri winter – just phenomenal.
