In the evening, the exhibit comes alive with lights and music. The Missouri Botanical Garden is located at 4344 Shaw Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63110.

Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog

For something that caters specifically to families with younger children, The Magic House is host to Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog. The interactive exhibit is filled with plenty of “paws-on” activities designed to reinforce the ten life lessons – Clifford’s Big Ideas – that teach children respect, sharing, responsibility, and more. The Magic House is part of the St. Louis Children’s Museum and the Clifford adventure runs through September 4th. The Museum is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Road, St. Louis, MO 63122.
