Please note: The Missouri Botanical Garden features 79 acres of landscaped displays. We recommend a minimum of three hours for your complete group tour of the Garden. For tightly scheduled itineraries, you may be able to manage a two-hour visit, but this will require skipping the famed Seiwa-en Japanese Garden.
The Tourism Department will issue one invoice for your entire booking once the total number of guests in the group is known. Payment must be made 21 days in advance by check, money order, made payable to the Missouri Botanical Garden, or by Discover, MasterCard, or Visa. Once payment is made, the necessary documentation or tickets will be on hold for pick-up upon arrival unless other arrangements are necessary.
Complete the Tourism Inquiry Form and a member of the Tourism Department will contact you. Or call toll-free 1-800-332-1286 (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.), or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Missouri Botanical Garden is a tobacco-free environment.
