It is beautiful and very well kept up. The Japanese garden. the woodland garden and all the rose gardens are fabulous! Take the tram on a hot day or walk on cooler days. There is no off season for the garden.

Right now you can visit the Garden at night for a wonderful walk through the GLOW. From 5pm-10pm nightly you can stroll through the garden and see lots of beautiful lights, have some hot chocolate and get your picture taken in a giant globe! Very family friendly and truly a fun evening!

The garden is beautiful any time of the year. We had our wedding at the rose garden next to the Japanese garden. The "aisle" is a long walk I had friends from throughout my life line the walkway, walking up to the covered area where my fiancé waited was a walk down memory lane. It was amazing with the tulips...

We love the Botanical garden. All the different events they have, Lantern festival, Garden glow, Japanese Festival, and music in the park to name a few. Great family fun, date day or date night. Really just beautiful and fun.

I go here 3 to 4 times a month to walk through gardens. It is beautiful during every season. It isn't cheap to get in but worth every penny. If you live nearby it's worth getting a yearly pass. They have great food and amazing festivals. I have two young children and they love it. They have their favorite places... More

I think this is the 7th year I've been to this event with our grandchildren. They enjoy making ornaments, having breakfast, seeing an extravagant floral show featuring many trains and for adults there is an explanation of the type of plants. In the evening you can return for a holiday light show that is not to be missed. The light... More

Family's first time in St. Louis and the glow was going on. We enjoyed it very much and would like to see the garden in the spring.

As Garden Members, we always go to the Missouri Botanical Garden a few times a year. This year we attended Garden Glow for my 40th Birthday with 2 other couples as our guests because we received 6 tickets with our Festival Level Membership (what a great value!!!). I could not have picked a more beautiful place to spend my birthday!!!!... More

We choose to visit the garden at night for garden glow in the few days we had visiting Saint Louis. It was great. Took a good hour plus to mossy through the beautifully LED lit garden with plenty of photo ops!
