We went in October, which, they admit, is not the best time to go--maybe we'll return in the spring--but even so, there was plenty to see, and it was a relaxing stroll in quite a park. And the Japanese garden is really cool, as is the rain forest. Well worth the trip.

The garden glow was an amazing event. Will probably attend again before the end of it! Even though the temps were in the single digits the night we went, it was still well worth it!

There is nothing to dislike about the Botanical Gardens. If you are not a member, you can still enter the gardens for free on one day during the week. Their special events are not to be missed.

We are longtime members of the Missouri botanical garden. Having traveled to uncountable number of locations and visited gardens wherever we could find them I can easily say that the Missouri botanical gardens is one of the best on the planet.

The current installation in the garden is the GLOW for the holiday season. It will be on display until January 4 of 2014. We have been to a countless number of holiday light displays as a family. Certainly none have ever been as spectacular as the Glow at the MBG.

The cost for nonmembers to enter is $18 per adult. All this may seem a bit stiff let me assure you it is well worth it and going to a wonderful organization.

Encourage your friends, encourage your family and go see the Glow at the Missouri botanical garden.

I went to the botanical gardens in early winter so there wasn't much in the way of plants outside. The beautiful display inside was the display of poinsettias with model trains running through them. You still had to pay the price of garden admission plus the added admission to the special display making it way over priced. That's why I didn't give it the top rating.
