The plants are well maintained and the effort put into each garden warrants a few hours. Fun for the whole family!

The Missouri Botanical Garden is my favorite place to visit in St. Louis. I have a family membership so I can go often and get my Garden fix. It is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year, but I try to go once a week in the spring because something new is always blooming. The Garden is... More

I'm a casual fan of flowers, trees, etc., like to look but don't know much about it. Yesterday we went to the Botanical Garden as we hadn't been there for a few months. We arrived at about the same time that Mary, one of the docents was starting a walking tour. We decided to join in and I'm glad we... More

I absolutely love the Botanical Garden....so much so that my husband and I had our engagement photos taken here. You could spend hours getting lost in this place. My mother-in-law is a flower enthusiast and she barely got through half of this place in 2 hours; however, you can make a quick run of it (depending on your tastes and... More

While it is very clean and relaxing, and well manicured, the entrance fee is a little excessive. But with that being stated, a must see.

There is an entrance fee to enjoy the gardens. Don't miss the Japanese Gardens where many weddings are performed. The rose garden is large and lovely. It is a serene and restful adventure. Do not miss!!

The Garden is a great spot to visit in the winter, spring, summer, fall. You get a different perspective each season. Great children's area to learn and play! Climatron keeps you cozy in the winter and tropical in the summer. Roses are wonderful during the summer...and don't miss Shaw's house if you're into historical homes!

Our Botanical Garden is stunning. I typically go several times each year to experience the different seasons. You'll certainly not be disappointed. My husband and I have been members of the Garden for years. Many times there are special exhibits and festivals. It's a great family, couples, or solo trip. Members pay .75 admission. Wednesdays are free.

I go often with who friends that will go almost everyday in the spring to see what new is blooming. There is a rainforest section, a Climatron, a Japanese garden, a Bavarian section that is to...
