  • Missouri Botanical Garden
    The tri-pronged value of the Triceratops tickets guarantees daytime admission?rain or shine or airborne toxic event?to the DinoQuest exhibit in the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron, a half-acre geodesic dome filled with pools and waterfalls, along with tropical rainforest florae and faunae. You'll also enjoy admission to the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden, as well as the coordinated Jurassic Bugs exhibit at the Butterfly House. The Climatron and Children's Garden must be visited on the same day; when you redeem your Groupon at the Botanical Garden and Children?s Garden, you will receive a pass to the Butterfly House, which may be redeemed on a separate date from the first two exhibits.
