Go Behind the Science with Garden Botanists!

Join Missouri Botanical Garden botanists for an open house at the Bayer Center (4500 Shaw Blvd.), including the library and herbarium.
  • Meet the scientists. Discover what they do, how they do it, and why they do it.
  • See displays highlighting exploration, collecting, studying plants in the field and research results.
  • Visit one of the largest herbarium collections in the world, with specimens gathered from around the globe and dating back to the 1700s.
  • View rare, classical, and illustrated botanical texts, some over 400 years old and still used today.
  • Learn how the Garden works to conserve plants both locally and around the world.
