This museum is in Forest Park, close to the equally fabulous St. Louis Zoo. As someone said, it's a "GEM". True. There are always some wonderful exhibitions plus a nice permanent collection and it's free. The new wing addition is beautiful too.

This museum is in the heart of Forest Park and constantly rotating pieces and adding new pieces of art. They have all types of art--impression, realism, modern, sculptures, Egyptian, Native American, glass, metal, marble, ceramic, and much more. A visitors place not to miss! And its still free, what a great gift.

Exhibitions change through out the year. Check ahead to look for your interests. Some exhibits are timed, so do that either before you go, or first when you arrive. It is a lovely museum with something for everyone.

I wasn't expecting too much when I came here. I was stunned at the sheer volume of pieces there. From the Masters to modern artists, impressionism to pottery. The museum displays an incredible variety of pieces. The best part? It's free!
