Missouri Botanical Garden

Located in St. Louis, the Missouri Botanical Garden is one of the oldest botanical institutions in the nation. The National Historic Landmark was founded in 1859 by Henry Shaw. Covering an area of 79 acres, it is a center for botanical research and science education.

The garden features a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden, the Climatron conservatory, and Shaw's original 1850 home. Together with the Tower Grove House and the administration building, the museum building constitutes the main campus of the botanical garden. At one time, a public restaurant existed in the building. Later, the building housed the Ewan collection of books and papers on botany and the history of science.

The Missouri Botanical Garden schedules flower shows, live music, educational and fitness activities throughout the year. It also is available for private parties or corporate events. The Garden Gate Shop offers home furnishings, plants, books, and garden accessories.
