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.

The most fun we've had since we got here. The botanical gardens will be the first place that we will visit next time we come to St Louis. It's so beautiful ..and big you can spend all day walking around and enjoying it. Large lakes with colorful fish that you can feed. Large souvenir store, great restaurant and so many things to see and explore. It only costs 6.00 per person.
They do a great job here keeping the grounds orderly and beautiful. Great walking areas and also many quiet places you can sit by yourself and not see very many people. Compared to other gardens I've been to I think they do the best job in identifying the different plants. Sometimes the extra shows and classes they can have can get pricey but being a member helps reduce those costs.
