Inspiring place to visit! It is worth touring during every season. A place to gather ideas for your home. Beautiful spaces for relaxing, writing, painting, photography....engagements/wedding etc etc. Spend 1 hour or 8, you will not be disappointed. Nice restaurant and fantastic gift shop.

We've been to the Botanical Garden several times over the years and we are always glad to see the changes made since our last visit. It's great St. Louis has a place such as this for young and old alike to see different species of plant life they may never see anywhere else. We especially like to go during the... More

Bring your chair or blanket, a cooler of your favorite beverage or buy then there and a picnic basket. Plan on being close to... More

One of the best botanical gardens around! They are always having great events, especially throughout the summer. Spring is of course beautiful but it is really worth visiting year round.

My husband and I were wed in August 2013 in the Missouri Botanical Gardens in the Spink Pavilion. Every year we come back for a Sunday brunch in the Spink Pavilion. The food is amazing, the wait staff always is friendly, and they always bring us complimentary champagne. The Garden is beautiful at any time of year. In spring, the... More

Our family attended the Festival of Lights before the Christmas holiday for the first time. The lights and music were a wonderful way to experience the spirit of the holidays! Smores for the kids and strategically positioned fire pits were a nice touch. Be sure to order tickets on-line!

We visit botanical gardens all over the world when we travel, and this one doesn't take a back seat to any. It's a shame they wasted the space for a children's garden that could have been built somewhere else, since there is a finite acreage in the middle of the city.
