Head through the entrance, which is in the shape of a water-spewing giant's head. It leads to 16 subterranean Chambers of Wonder that feature crystal art installations. Visit the Blue Hall, which has slanted walls and contains several artistic masterpieces. Among them is The Persistence of Time by Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Go into the Crystal Dome, which consists of nearly 600 mirrors. Wander into Eden, a forest of thin, polished brass structures surrounded by mirrored walls. Walk along the Ice Passage where your footsteps are accompanied by the sound of cracking ice.

This colossal piece is reflected in the water of the Mirror Pool that sits below it. Investigate the display of Roman artifacts. Among them are silver coins and the remains of a wall.
The garden also encompasses attractions for children, including a maze in the shape of a hand and an activity-based play tower, offering climbing, swinging, sliding and other activities.
