There were a great variety of exhibits to visit and it was displayed beautifully. There are two buildings to see so you do need a number of hours so that you can see it all. The areas around the Museum are just beautiful to see so take the time and walk around. You will not be disappointed because the setting... More

There is no way to experience the entire museum in two our four hours...you need at least a whole day, or more. The museum is vast, multiple buildings, multiple floors. So much to take in. Nestled within Forest Park, be sure to schedule time to see other nearby opportunities for exploration.

There was a great variety of art that was beautifully displayed. Staff were very helpful to find exhibits. I was thrilled to find handcrafted clip earrings! Because we live in the Kansas City area, we are spoiled with an amazing art gallery/museum. We were pleased to see that St. Louis's is almost as nice. Seriously, if in St. Louis, it... More

nice collections, the new wing is impressive, but the older part has such a horrible smell of must, mold, and/or mildew, that I can't stand to visit for very long.

Enjoyed seeing so many German artists along with the Dutch and French. Museum has a good mix of modern and classical exhibits. Very nice location in Forest Park. Easy to reach with good parking. Very good gift shop - - - who doesn't love museum gift shops with their local artists' jewelry and crafts for sale. Great Christmas shopping any... More

There is a variety of things to see - sculptures, paintings, & artifacts. There is a very picturesque panoramic view in front of the museum that is a must see. The food was a little expensive, but good. I loved all the local items available in the shop. I went back to buy another pair of earrings.

A great place to spend the day! The art museum has a wide range of exhibits to interest anyone in your party. The new is addition is fantastic. I really enjoyed the exhibit on the Impressionist and their use of open air painting. I had no idea now cumbersome the photo equipment was that they used to capture the essence... More

We enjoyed an afternoon stroll through the museum, my boyfriend gets bored easily though and we didn't finish all the exhibits. Although we saw some beautiful artwork, next time I will go alone so I can see more.
