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 love going to the gardens throughout the year. St. Louis may not have the population that large cities have, however we compete with our cultural attractions to large and international cities. Among the gems is the botanical gardens. Whether it is a yearly festivals, or music Wednesdays, free admission Wednesday and Saturday mornings, beauty is everywhere year round. The... More

As far as I am concerned there is not a better place to visit in St. Louis in the Spring than the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Tulips, Jonquils, Cherry and Plum Trees are in full bloom and the Red Bud is about to make its appearance. It is reasonably priced and is only a couple of blocks off I-44 at... More

If you visit St. Louis, this attraction is a must see. The estate of Henry Shaw is beautiful. Wonderful walking paths, beautiful old trees, and plants from all over the world. The "Climatron" is like walking into a rainforest. Huge plants from South America and other parts of the globe. There is a tram for those that don't want or... More

This garden is a real gem. It is especially beautiful in spring, but lovely all year round. I believe it is still free on Tuesday, which is an incredible bargain. The climatron is interesting and educational, The children's play area is a favorite with my grandchild, who is 10. The fountains in the summer are fun for children to play... More

I am a native St. Louisan and this is one of my favorite places. Beautiful venue for a quiet stroll. My grandchildren love to walk the paths and feed the Koi in the Japanese Garden. There are always interesting exhibits. They love the maze. You don't have to be a gardener or a botanist to enjoy the Missouri Botanical Garden.... More
