My boyfriend and I visited St. Louis, and because we were staying in a hotel right downtown....we were kind of skeptical about visiting this culture park a little ways away. But it was SO worth it! The sculptures were beautiful. Different, but beautiful. They even have a sculpture tour through the woods...however, it was freezing when we visited. So we... More

The sculptures were odd and I think the artists are pulling a fast one of most of us, but the grounds are beautiful and it is dog-friendly. We had a nice hike through the woods and some good laughs at the over-the-top descriptions of what the artists were trying to say about the meaning of their sculptures.

After a four hour drive, this was a perfect spot (not far from I-44) for my grandchildren (5, 7, 9) to run off a little steam. They were very interested in the sculptures, and especially the hut a high school had made. They want to make one in my back yard! The giant eyeball is a must see, as it... More

Nice park located on spacious grounds at the edge of St. Louis. The art work is spread out so there's plenty of relaxing walking and it never feels crowded, even when they are hosting an event. Great place to go and hang out on a nice day.

Beautiful art and beautiful spaces to enjoy a peaceful picnic. Bring some sandwiches, a blanket, and some drinks and enjoy a nice day. This is a great destination for everyone (family, couples, friends, etc.).

Laumeier provides varying art displays both out in the open as well as along nature paths. Though popular this park never seems over crowded and is a great time outdoors!

Very nice place to have a good walk. If you like modern and outdoor, thats the place. Beautiful sculptures, clean air, people with dogs. I really enjoy the place.

I enjoyed the sculptures here. I was a bit put off by the people letting their kids climb all over it, especially with the signs asking them not to. The signage in the park was random. Some exhibits had good signs while others were missing or incoherent. There was some emphasis on the nature aspects of the park, but the... More

To be honest, nothing really fancy, but a great place to take younger kids and grand kids to run, get exercise, and use their imaginations. Grampa, "Is it a giant bug, airplane, or a space ship?" Very odd, unusual and large sculptures. I have to admit, you'll be wondering what the artist was thinking or trying to create. Excellent hiking... More
