Visited the Botanical Gardens for the lantern festival. Chinese acrobats were amazing. The outdoor gardens light up at 8:00pm. Very beautiful and defiantly worth the crowds and lines.

I’m not much of a green thumb myself, so gardens have never really appealed to me. That is, until my third-grade class field trip introduced me to the rainforest. From the second I set foot inside ‘the Climatron’s’ geodesic dome, and that pungent smell of damp earth and jungle foliage tickled my nose, I’ve been an admirer of the tropics. Here’s your chance to meander through groves of banana and cacao trees. Savor the fragrances of exotic orchids or ripening coffee beans. Don’t fret the sweat dribbling down your face from the humidity; that’s nature’s way of cleansing the pores.

This area was great. It was huge and I wish I had more time but if your in town around Mothers Day make sure to stop by because the Iris Garden is Spectacular!

You’ll find one of the country’s largest orchid collections at the Missouri Botanical Garden, which welcomed its first specimens of the delicate flowering plants in 1876. The garden now nurtures more than 3,000 orchid species, ranging from bright pink showstoppers to dainty, spotted varieties. Other notable displays include more than 700 types of daffodils, a dazzling selection of daylilies, and a tropical paradise inside the iconic Climatron conservatory, a 175-foot-wide, climate-controlled geodesic dome built in 1960.

Best Time to Visit: February and March yield the only opportunity to see the full orchid display; flowering trees reach their peak from March through May.

I went and not only is it in a bad area it was also closed and looked like it had been for a while. They should have updated the website.

This place is unreal. The most beautiful gardens and they have a variety from around the world thanks to this first class establishment. There is an overwhelmingly warm welcome felt throughout the park... a must see for visitors.

Awesome but best to go when something is in bloom eg mid may for iris , spring for peonies , mid summer for day lilies - garden can tell you what is in bloom

The oldest continuous botanical garden in North America is well worth the visit. There is always something new in bloom.

Me encanta el Missouri Botanical Garden. La entrada no es muy cara, y se puede pasar varias horas adentro explorando. Tiene un montón de lugares donde se puede sentar, comer un picnic, leer, y descansar. Las plantas cambian casa estación, pero siempre hay ciertas cosas como el Climatron. El Climatron es muy interesante – es como una burbuja grande y la clima adentro es tropical. Mi novio puertorriqueño dice que es el lugar perfecto para él cuando él está nostálgico. El Botanical Garden no es solamente para plantas, tiene varios eventos durante el año como el festival de linternas chinas, festival japonés, luces durante las navidades, y los conciertos cada miércoles durante el verano. También tiene lindo arte, con muchas obras de vidrio hecho por el famoso Chouilly.
