Missouri Botanical Garden reviews
We got here 1 hour before close - so it was half price. For us an hour was enough to walk through quickly and see a few highlights. They have an exhibit with metal sculptures throughout the park. more »
As a member of the Garden, I love to visit all seasons. It is one of the best anywhere. The children's section is a lot of fun for children. As a traveler, make this a must see! more »
I have been to MANY botanical gardens - the Missouri Botanical Garden was by far my absolute favorite! First off, the staff (Mike at the front desk especially) are very helpful and friendly! The gardens have so much to offer and I love how well all of the plants are marked - a big pet peeve of mine. There are lots of great activities for kids. A good portion of the pathways are shaded. The history here is very rich and the museums in the gardens are very informative. Can’t wait to go back!
A Missouri gem. The flora here is perfectly maintained, and the surrounding environment can't be missed. Plenty of glass art is tastefully placed all throughout the park. The dome is obviously a stand-out with many plants I've never seen before. If you're in St Louis, don't miss out on the walk you can have here. It's one of a kind, and much larger than you think.
