I have so many warm memories of MOBOT... it's always a MUST SEE every time I'm in St. Louis. Add it to your list and DON'T MISS IT! Fun for the entire family.

This was a pretty cool experience for any plant and flower lover. It was a little late in the year for peak experiences, but still was a day well spent.

No matter the season, the Missouri Botanical Garden is something to see and experience. The Garden Glow is very well done with the lights coordinating with the music...all of it surrounding you as you walk through the garden.

Went for the holiday Garden Glow. It was beautiful! Much bigger than I imagined. It was 5:45pm Monday night so didn’t seem overly busy. Parking was easy in and out. Just a beautiful events that will make everyone happy.

This is one our favorite places in StL. The lights were beautiful at night. We liked the music with the lights. We skipped the treat stops as we were planning dinner at a nearby resturant. Like to visit in all seasons.

Take YOUR TIME....

We visited the day before the Japanese festival.
Sorry to have missed it, but never having been there previously, we were more happy to have missed it.

We were able to wander...stop.....look....wander...sit
At our pace with a few people at times around us but usually not.

The basic question of a tourist, IS it worth going here? My answer is yes, but understand this is a HUGE garden ...We found ample benches to sit..rest look
Enjoy it....

This is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I went here with a friend, and there is just so much to look at and explore. I love that there are names of plants everywhere with little symbols letting you know more about the plant.

Even though the gardens are beautiful, my favorite part has to be the koi fish. Some of them are just huge! And you can buy fish food for 50¢. Trust me, this is a lot of fun no matter how simple it sounds.

What a terrific botanical garden! We went on a wet, misty, cold October morning and delighted in this garden. The signage within each area is very informative. Beyond admission, a separate fee of $5 provides a 30-minute tram tour around the garden. Tram driver Emma safely navigated as tour guide narrator extraordinaire Fred shared his knowledge, love, and enthusiasm for the site. Consider it an orientation to the gardens and its founder Henry ShawC, so thanks to Fred you will want to wander to relatively remote areas.
The Climatron is effectively a hot house with plants from ferns to fruit. The Children’s Garden is so much more than a garden with activities and areas to explore.
We look forward to a return visit.

The Japanese Festival is one of the highlights of the STL summer. I enjoyed the ethnic cuisine, Japanese sumo wrestlers, and the overall favorite the Taiko drummers. A must see event.

I have been to bigger and smaller botanical gardens, and this one fits in between. Takes 2-3 hours to go through. Very clean and lots of varieties of plants, trees, and flowers. Very enjoyable time.
