My wife, two toddlers, and I visited the Missouri Botanical Gardens in late June 2015. It was truly a fun time for all. We were fortunate to find a parking space rather quickly, but it appeared that the main lot was mostly full, and people were parking in overflow. We attended during the Lantern Festival; however, we went during the... More

The Missouri Botanical Gardens are a great way to spend your afternoon. The expansive grounds are amazing. They offer various events but came for the yearly Lantern Festival. If you have ever wanted to feel the throwback feeling of an excited curious child then I would recommend making the lantern festival. The displays are made from recycled items and they... More

We were disappointed when we went in and found out they did not honor senior discounts for people who live outside of St Louis. This was not covered in the information we had found earlier. They ask your zip - find out in advance what the St Louis number is and give them that!!!! The gardens are beautiful even in... More

I have been a member of the Missouri Botanical Garden for a number of years. It is a fantastic place to see beautiful flowers and trees. They sometimes have special exhibits like the Lantern Festival which was amazing. The Christmas display is always great. It is a jewel of place for St. Louis.

My wife and I stopped here on our mid week getaway in St Louis. We really enjoyed the plants and displays. This was the first time we had ever been to a botanical garden, and I think we will be going to more know. Thanks for introducing use to a new vacation experience!

Okay, I admit it. I live in St. Louis and am proud of the Missouri Botanical Garden and have visited dozens of times. Not only does it have a geodesic dome designed by Buckminster Fuller, the dome hosts the Climatron rain forest habitat. Its Japanese Garden was designed and installed by experts and the smaller Chinese Garden was installed as... More

The Garden is a hidden jewel with a number of events throughout the year--concerts, Japanese Festival and numerous not-for-profit functions. The most recent of my visits, was the best of all--the Chinese Lantern Festival. This will be the last week for it, and a must see, at night!

We went during the Japanese Lantern Festival and it was very lovely. If you do go during this time, it's best to get before dark to see all the other beautiful gardens, my favorite was the Japanese gardens, before it gets dark. Then walk back through to see the lanterns lit at night. It is a wonderful experience. This place... More
