Fodor's Review

Known locally as Shaw's Garden for founder Henry Shaw, the garden is a 15-minute drive southwest of Downtown. Highlights include a Japanese garden; the Climatron, a tropical rain forest housed in a geodesic glass dome; an Ottoman Turkish style garden; and a 2-acre children's garden representing Missouri's major ecosystems.

Nice garden spot

Very enjoyable garden and arboretum complex, with both outdoor garden areas and indoor conservatory style exhibits. Well worth a visit, but located a ways from downtown and not easily reached via public transport.
