The most beautiful botanic gardens in the erea. One should go there in the late evening before dark which gives you an option to hear the rwitting birds. Its lovely music with very few people. Do not miss the place.

There are several spots of gardens on campus. In the A288 plant & soil building are different plants. It's a nice hour visit plus the children's area is nice.Friends from out of state enjoy seeing all flowers etc.

Free, quiet and quick visit. Everything is clearly labeled. Special kids' areas. It's not as big as anticipated, but there are also areas that are used by students and staff only so I am sure we only saw a tiny bit of all they have...More

Maybe this is heaven for botanists or horticultural fans but for us this was a pleasant stroll on a quiet afternoon.

The MSU Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit, particularly in the latter part of Spring when the Roses are in bloom. There is something for everyone to appreciate even the children.

It was interesting to see the great variety of plants that will grow in this area. And everything is growing in tastefully arranged beds. It was an informative way to spend the time while waiting for the vet hospital to treat our cat.
