My kids sitting by the reflecting pool at the entrance to the Jewel Box. (taken 6 or 7 years ago.)
The Jewel Box is an Art Deco style display greenhouse, a showcase for flowers and plants. It was originally planned for the worlds fair in St. Louis, but they ran out of time to get it done. It was finally built in the 1930's and renovated in 2002. There are over 4,000 panes of glass framed in verdigris copper. They have lovely seasonal and holiday displays. And it's a popular wedding site. If you ever find yourself in St. Louis, I recommend a visit. It's in Forest Park, next to the zoo, the art museum and the Muny (outdoor theater).
