“Cold day, still fun”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The climatron (rainforest atmosphere) and temperate house were perfect for a cold day. I can't wait to go back when it is warmer to see the outside gardens.

“Go!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Don't miss this treasure. Very pleasant day. Kids park is fun. You will not regret going. There is a section about home gardening. The art shows that they bring in are enjoyable.

The gardens were beautiful and peaceful. There was a lot going on but never felt rushed. Lot of spots to sit and enjoy the all of the different displays.

“Worth Every Penny”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The exhibits are always changing, so it never gets old. We usually go at least once a year. I won an annual membership and really enjoyed the treat. The history and variety of plants is amazing. Since we live in Missouri, the local native plant exhibit is very interesting.
