Great place filled with beautiful flowers and cool plants. Huge with lots of space. Easy to find a quiet place even when it is crowded. Great thing to do on beautiful day in STL.

The garden is undergoing renovations but it is still beautiful. The Climatron is beautiful as always. The parking lot sign indicated that lot was full but it wasn’t. The front desk situation was a little chaotic.

I've been to many gardens around the world and believe the Mo-Bot is one of the best. IMHO it rivals Kew Gardens in London. I have been a Mo-Bot member for many years and appreciate the membership benefits.

$12 per day for those 13 and over, 12 and younger are free If you choose to go into the Children’s Garden then it is $5 for ages 3-12(which is worth it!!) But no additional charge for those 13 and up.
