This is a fantastic art museum and changes all the time. Can spend hours looking at all the remarkable art work and appreciating all the artifacts found in the museum. The new building is wonderful too.

This Art Museum is in the beautiful Forest Park in a World's Fair building - a truly lovely setting. We thought that was enough reason to visit, but we were shocked by the number of pieces from all different periods. Their collection of Italian Renaissance art is very impressive, as is their Modern Art wing. Everything from Modigliani to Renoir,... More

Wow! I had not been to the St. Louis Art Museum for about ten years. What was I thinking? The museum is in a lovely historical building with great views of Forest Park. Inside there are many beautiful pieces of artwork and some unusual pieces as well. The staff members are very helpful and the experience was very peaceful. The... More

All the museums in Forest Park as well as the Zoo, save for special exhibits, are FREE! As well as having incredible art work, you can't find a better combination.

The new addition to the art museum is great. Lots of modern art on display! The restaurant at the new addition is amazing. We visited the Impressionist display & had lunch. Great afternoon with lunch & art!

While it costs a nominal fee to ride to the top of St. Louis' Gateway Arch (unless you are a senior with a National Park's card), you can go through airport-type security into the underground lobby for free where you will find lovely shops (candy store and a standard gift souvenirs shop) and the FREE "Museum of Westward Expansion."

I was impressed with the European art collection. Being from Chicago I am used to the impressionists and the other European art being separate. It was a nice change to see the paintings more side by side as when they were painted. Also it was nice to see modern and classic works together. It was a nice well rounded collection.

I was fortunate to make the last movie on Art Hill this year. The movie was Meet Me in St Louis. We brought our blankets and settled in for the evening. Only complaint is that there are way more chair groups than blankets. It would be nice if they reserved the area closest to the screen for the blanket groups.... More
