The Missouri Botanical Gardens are my all-time favorite! It changes daily with blooming plants/flowers being brought from their large greenhouses and swapped out. It’s gorgeous in all seasons, and the special events are always worth seeing! I could go on, but I think everyone should...More

Any time of the year is a good time to visit, but it is especially nice for the special exhibits. The Flora Bourelis was beautiful and the Christmas lights were even neat if the is possible. The Garden is always coming up with new and...More

The garden is big and well-organized however due to winter, there is no flowers and green trees, which makes the garden less beautiful. Make sure you choose the right time to visit so it is worth $12 entrance fee

Our families gathered for a most beautiful wedding held on the grounds. Against a backdrop of trees and the lake the photos are stunning. Highly recommend for an outdoor wedding. Indoor accommodations are available in case of inclement weather.

The botanical garden is always spectacular. We go often. It does not matter the time of year or whether there are special events, it is a must see. The gardens rival some of the best in the country.

This is more of a review of the Glow, than of the gardens themselves. When going to the evening event, besides not being able to see the gardens at night, many of the buildings aren't open, so it's kind of disappointing. The lights are pretty,...More

Went and did the walk through the garden glow. They knocked it out of the park. It was so very well done and very pretty. I cannot wait to do it again next year.

My family visited prior to heading home from St. Louis in October. We spent the morning there, and it was really enjoyable. Our favorite part was the Climatron, in which you follow a winding path through what feels like a jungle. It was so cool...More
