I visit botanical gardens everywhere I travel and the MO Botanical Gardens is one of the best! Be sure to make your way all across the the gardens and feed the koi from the bridge. Climatron is amazing, as well!

Have been to the botanical garden several times, and it does not seem to matter what time you go. It is always beautiful, relaxing, take a stroll and relieve stress.

Give yourself at least two hours. Take the tram ride first so you get an overview of what there is to see. There are inside and outside gardens and a historic house thrown in. Highly recommended

I've been to the Garden glow at Christmas and its amazing! You can see proposals on every corner! The lights are just beautiful. We also saw a glass flower design event and I have beautiful pics from that.
