The Art Museum is one of the treasures of St. Louis. Its special exhibits are often fantastic, and the permanent collection is magnificent. I love the small changing exhibits in the textile gallery, the magnificent English portraits, the Impressionists, the Asian art, the classical sculpture, and the well-selected contemporary art. There is something here for everyone. The gift shop is... More

Excellent option while in St. Louis. Nice collection of assorted art from different ages. Not huge like the Metropolitan in NY, but big enough to have a nice experience.

Great place to go and see all sorts of art. Many contemporary and American artists. Some rooms seemed warm to me, but I imagine it has to be temperature controlled for the art. Most rooms were cool. Nice way to expose kids to an art museum without breaking the bank in case they don't last long.

St. Louis is renowned for having many free or very low cost attractions (check out the Missouri Civil War Museum, for one), and here's another one. The Art Museum is free, and a dazzling place, where you think you will visit for a short while and end up staying for hours. The displays are tastefully done, and there seems to... More

I encourage everyone to go to the St Louis Art Museum. First, It's free! There is a great collection and you can spend one hour or all day. I liked visiting the Impressionists exhibit and more traditional works. If you have children or tough to please teenagers (like there are another kind), go to the lower level and check out... More

While it is smaller than say the Chicago Art museum, The building is just as grand and they seemed to have works by the vast majority of the most famous painters and sculptors. I was admittedly in a rush, but thoroughly impressed by what St. Louis continues to share with people for FREE!

Hit the Missouri History Museum and one of the world's greatest, free zoo, all in Forest Park. You can also dine here at the restaurant that has great food... More

I was able to attend the last day of the Impressionism Exhibit at the St. Louis Art Museum. The exhibit was actually extended due to popularity. This exhibit was fantastic because it did not totally focus on traditional artists such as Monet, Manet and Renoir. The collection went beyond the traditional including not only impressionist paintings, but also photographs. The... More

We never get tired of visiting the St. Louis Art Museum! There's always something new each time we visit. I think maybe you'd not see it all even if you visited 3 days in a row. One of our favorites has always been the Egyptian mummies. Kind of creepy but it's probably the only place we'll be able to see... More
