“Best botanical garden ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is another gem of St. Louis. Besides the beautiful landscaped gardens, they also have special festivities here that have become extremely popular---such as the free music in the park WEd.s during the summer, the annual Japanese Festival on Labor Day, the Chinese Festival of lights in the summer, the Orchid show in Jan-March, the train exhibit in Dec. and much much more! Outside the park is made up of several sections---rose gardens, the Climatron, the Temperate House, Chinese Garden, Boxwood Garden, Italian garden, woodland gardens, test gardens, huge Japanese garden. There's even a children's garden and a maze of bushes so the whole family can enjoy this place! Great place for family photos!

“Great for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Spectacular display of flora specially in the spring and summer. The feature that I love the most is the Children's Garden where families with small children can explore and play.

Always great Winter programs... now, the Orchids. Also, great light fare in the cafe'. No reservations, just grab a good friend and go. Excellent parking. Beautiful grounds.

“CHOO CHOO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Went and saw what i believe they call the Winterland Express. This is when they have numerous trains set up among different scenes showing decorations for Christmas and a number of rustic views. The Missouri Botanical Garden to me can be considered " The Garden of All Seasons." I recommend to become members because after a few visits you will surely see a value for being a member. Check out the various plant sales as well as bulbs from the many organizations which share their passion for planting.
