This garden is massive and gorgeous. The indoor rainforest was a great retreat in the middle of winter. Everything is so diverse and lush! The Mediterranean/temperate indoor garden was also beautiful. There are many chances to learn about the plants in the garden and the gardens are, of course, extremely eco-friendly. I would love to visit this place again in... More

Being mid-January, there was almost nothing in bloom. It was still very impressive and I can only imagine how beautiful it must be in the spring.

From the time you walk into the visitors center until you return to your parking place, you will be wow-ed. We got our first introduction to Chihuly blown glass at an extensive seasonal installation at Cheekwood a few years ago, and love it. So, while you're enjoying one of the best botanical gardens open to the public, be sure to... More

Went to the Garden Glow and the lights were awesome. Always enjoy visits to the Garden no matter what time of year it is or what event they are having.

We had a walk on a cold wet day and had a great time. So much to see. We explored the climatron, got lost in the maze, walked around the lake and admired the Christmas light display.

The Missouri Botanical Garden is an impressive marvel that has been impressing visitors and St. Louisans since 1859. Anchored by The Climatron, a beautiful geodesic greenhouse housing a rainforest, the 79-acre grounds feature multiple structures, a garden center, interpretive center and multiple specialty gardens. The recent addition of a holiday GardenGlow gave locals a new nighttime holiday destination, and was... More

We attended this year's Garden Glow on the last night it was open and it was fabulous! The weather cooperated and the evening was magical! The route was well laid out and the light was composed such that around each corner was a glimpse of what was coming up next! There were marked photo op areas, several stations of warm... More

Surprisingly even a cold rainy day didn't spoil our visit. Can't wait to return when we can take more time to enjoy the outside exibits.
