MoBot is just gorgeous. Any time of year, it does not disappoint and there's always something new to see. My kids could spend the whole day in the Children's Garden. Don't miss seeing the Japanese coi fish eating!

MoBot truly is a gem. Beautiful gardens. If you are interested, you just might learn something. We recently enjoyed the Chinese Lantern Festival. The concert series is nice too.

Wonderful place to take family for a day out. Taking pictures is a given. Ride the train through the park to hear about the history behind the founder. Best time to see is in the spring when everything is in bloom. We went in June this year, and missed the azaleas and cherry blossoms. It is an ideal place for... More

If you like Gardens this is extremely good. Admission is $8 for adults and St Louis and St Louis County get in free wed to fri, but check their wed site. All types of trees, flowers bushes, etc. Indoor rainforest. Great playground for kids. Parking is free and the immediate area looks ok. They have a restaurant and I saw... More

We enjoy the Garden for kid-friendly family fun and for adult entertainment too. For kids, the children's garden is the best play area in St. Louis. Get in and explore; it's worth the admission price. Bring coins and head to the Japanese Garden to feed the fish. Go off the trail for a few minutes and try to find some... More

Also known as Shaw's Garden. The original Henry Shaw estate is on the grounds and is worth going through. There is a large parking lot. There is a large greenhouse called the Climatron which has lots of tropical vegetation, waterfalls, & streams. On the grounds, there are numerous walking paths through the trees, plants, lakes, & streams. Most of the... More

There is always something in bloom here. The new Chinese lantern exhibition is exceptional, probably better viewed when lit at night. Great shop, nice restaurant, helpful staff.

The Botanical Gardens are wonderful with all sorts of well-labeled plants and flowers to enjoy, but right now the Chinese Lantern Festival is going on and it is a wonderful exhibition of traditional Chinese themes which, when lighted, are stunning. The performances by the young Chinese acrobats are also sensational.

I love just about everything at the botanical garden. The herb garden is stellar. Feeding fish in the Japanese garden is a ton of fun (Tip: buy fish food in the garden gate shop as you enter - it is cheaper! And if you have enough you can channel your inner Sea World worker and teach the koi to reach... More
