Bayer Hall at Missouri Botanical Garden

Large event space and spacious ballroom at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Dramatic Bayer Hall in the Ridgeway Visitor Center is the modern-day entrance to the Missouri Botanical Garden—widely considered one of the top three botanical gardens in the world.

Bayer Hall’s barrel-vaulted ceiling are inspired by the Crystal Palace of the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, and its floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the gardens. In the atrium, the Missouri Botanical Garden Blue Chandelier designed by renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly serves as a stunning backdrop for photos. Art exhibits grace the walls of the hall, and the dance floor spreads out under the stars on the adjacent Spoehrer Plaza. All this—and a convenient location near both Highway 64 and 44—make Bayer Hall the perfect place for your big event.
