I am a Professor of Art History and Studio Art, and shuffle my students through here twice a year, as part of their grade is being able to answer questions about the artwork in this museum, from me, for points. I was supremely interested in the outcome of the renovations of this museum, hoping that it would expedite some of... More

This really is a very good Art museum, I especially liked the Nick Cave exhibit. Something for every one to see and enjoy. Also, its free! So go ahead and pay for the underground parking. It is 15$ and your car will be safe. There is also a large free lot, without surveillance cameras, and where my rental car was... More

The St. Louis Art Museum is a pleasant one. The building itself is a classic, and the collection is quite nice. The museum is free, and there is a nice restaurant and a decent cafe. My wife discovered a wonderful painting by Gari Melchers (Vespers). We visited in the dead of winter, but I'm sure the ground in Forest Park... More

The title is not meant to damn with faint praise - I live in London, and I'm spoilt for great museums. SLAM is a very good museum, with an excellent permanent collection and some very interesting special exhibitions. We caught the end of Atua: Sacred Art from Polynesia, which was fascinating and eye-opening, despite us being familiar with the collection... More

Didn't have a chance to visit the special exhibition, but they have a very good - and eclectic - collection. I particularly enjoyed the modern art - Picasso, Beckmann, Matisse.

It took a while to find this place but oh, so worth it! One of the best city museums we have visited---and it was FREE! Loved the paintings and especially loved the Degas ballerina there! Didn't get to visit the gift shop as it closed right at the closing of the museum. If you are in St. Louis, this is... More

The St. Louis Art Museum is also a free attraction, housed in one of the few building left standing after the 1904 World's Fair. There are fees for special exhibits, except Fridays, where all is free. Parking is free too, but you may have to hunt for it. The museum has several additions housing its ever-growing collections, and is definitely... More

They have expanded since the last time I was here. Nice gift shops and a good looking cafeteria. Wide ranging art pieces and pleasantly displayed. Worth spending some time visiting, and it's FREE!
