2021 Botanical Gardens

Missouri Botanical Garden

Autism-Friendly Family Night


We want all of our guests to have the best possible experience, and we and the staff at the Missouri Botanical Garden agree that the current thunderstorms in the forecast could inhibit that. We are working with the Missouri Botanical Garden to reschedule this event for the fall, when the weather will hopefully be more cooperative. Thank you for understanding, and please check back for the announcement of the new date and registration.

If you have any questions about the rescheduling, please contact Kris Krieger at 636-893-7103 or kris.krieger@esmw.org.

Explore, discover, and experience the beauty of the Garden and all its wonders at this FREE, family-friendly event. This event is designed to allow families that have children with autism to experience the Garden in a secure environment. Discover OrigamiintheGarden, an exhibition of 18 awe-inspiring, large-scale sculptures featuring flying birds, painted ponies, emerging butterflies, floating boats, a majestic tower that creates the illusion of 1,000 stainless steel origami peace cranes hovering above the water, and more.

There will be a self-guided scavenger hunt, an area to feed the fish, and an opportunity to pot your own plant during the visit! Different Dynamics will be joining the fun to provide interactive, hands-on music activities.

The safety of our guests and staff are top of mind - please adhere to the following garden safety protocols:

If your child is unable to tolerate a mask, please contact us for additional support.
