For more than 150 years, the Missouri Botanical Garden has brought beauty and culture to the people of St. Louis while contributing greatly to the world of science as a center for botanical study.
Founded by Henry Shaw in 1859, the garden’s 79 acres includes eight specialized gardens, a conservatory and numerous special events and educational classes.
It is a comprehensive center for all things beautiful and flowering and is supported by numerous philanthropic efforts, including Little Shop Around the Corner near the garden’s entrance.
For more things beautiful, visit the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House in Faust Park.
