There are several spots of gardens on campus. In the A288 plant & soil building are different plants. It's a nice hour visit plus the children's area is nice.Friends from out of state enjoy seeing all flowers etc.

Free, quiet and quick visit. Everything is clearly labeled. Special kids' areas. It's not as big as anticipated, but there are also areas that are used by students and staff only so I am sure we only saw a tiny bit of all they have to offer. Cool learning environment though. Worth a visit.

There are several gardens located throughout the MSU campus. J. W. Beale garden displays plants in four main collections. The plants are labeled and the stroll through the acres are very educational. The Horticulture and Landscape gardens allow one to view mature trees and shrubs in a well designed space. Allow about an hour for each of these gardens. Then visit the perennial and rose gardens which also provide a feast for the eyes and mind. Nearby is a demonstration Bee Garden which gives one ideas and information about attracting pollinators. And there is also a fun children's garden! Visiting these gardens will take at least another hour. And don't miss the Healing Garden which is located a short driving distance from the other gardens near the Radiology Bldg. This is an easy 30 minute walk. And when you're done you might want to visit the campus Dairy Store for an ice cream! All told it is a pleasant 1/2 day outting!

The MSU Botanical Gardens was a pleasant surprise - The Roses were in full bloom and there was every species you could ever want all smelling better than the next - There were fountains with big marble balls and great backdrops for pictures - All in all a must see and very breath taking gardens as well as a wonderful Children's Garden - Definitely make this a part of your itinerary if you are ever in the MSU area and then end your stay at the MSU Dairy Store to make it a day to remember!!
