Member Benefits

How many people does my membership admit per day?

The number of free daily admissions to the Missouri Botanical Garden, Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House, and Shaw Nature Reserve is based on membership level. The total number of admissions per membership household* is as follows:

·     Individual – One adult and children 12 and under

·     Garden/Garden Senior – Two adults and children 12 and under

·     Friends and Family – Four adults and children 12 and under

·     Festival – Six adults and children 12 and under

·     Contributor – Eight adults and children 12 and under

·     President’s Society and Above – Unlimited (groups larger than ten, please contact Institutional Advancement prior to your visit).

*Note: The total number of admissions per day is based on a membership household. For example, if you have a Garden-level membership, a total number of two adults (plus children) will receive free admission—not two people per membership card.
