One of the oldest botanical institutions in the United States, Missouri Botanical Garden is a National Historic Landmark. Explore its 32 hectares (79 acres) of plant displays, and savor the peace of this city oasis. Stroll through the serene Japanese garden, one of the largest of its kind in North America, and relax among waterfalls, small beaches, and Asian flowers. In the Climatron, a large geodesic dome, discover a tropical rainforest and an aquarium of exotic fish. Hop aboard the garden's tram to take in the sights from a different vantage point. This 25 to 30 minute tour reveals more about the different plants, sculptures, and buildings. Picnics are not permitted; instead, you can visit any of several on-site cafes.

  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever been! If you love gardening or just plants in general this is definitely your place! The dome was one of the coolest things ever! Waterfalls and tropical plants all throughout it! It honestly felt like you were walking through the jungle book!! Such a beautiful place with beautiful architecture as well! Highly recommend! $14 admission per person and they have plants and things for sale also!
  • Well designed and large venues for the themed areas. The traveling origami sculptures were enjoyable spread throughout as if they had been there for years. We visited for 4 hours and could not fully see it all. Amazing colors and blooms with such a great variety. The floating gardens are worth the trip alone. Perhaps the best botanical garden there is. Ive visited many and cannot imagine one better. Kudos to the many folks it takes to create and maintain this heaven on earth.
