It's amazing that such a beautiful and tranquil place can be found in the middle of the city. Once you enter the doors and head out to the garden you can forget about the highway and the ruckus going on around it. There is always...More

This place with the site to behold. During our visit, the Japanese exhibit was present. There was so much culture present. The botanical garden it's self was beautiful. Pictures really don't do it justice. There is lots of walking so be prepared.

Visited July 2017. Overwhelmed by the size and depth of the gardens here. A visitor could easily spend all day leisurely walking the grounds and enjoying the flora and fauna. Onsite restaurant was very good and the views of the gardens would be especially quaint...More

The Missouri Botanical Gardens is one of the highlights of the St. Louis metropolitan area. It's grounds are lovely pretty much any time of year. The shops are fun and have interesting merchandise outside of the realm of the typical mall shop, and they have...More

Yes. The Children's Garden is located in the approx. middle of the property, so you have to pass through the main ticketing entry to get there. Check the Drury Hotels website for a $1 discount admission offer; staying at... More

The Botanical Gardens are less than a half hour away from Bush Stadium. If you like flowers and horticultural things, this is a place for you to visit. If not, don't.

I would think so. I would bet they would have everything decorated with a holiday theme. Maybe call ahead or go online to ask about special exhibits at that time of year.
