My last visit to SLAM was about a year ago, before the "new" wing was complete, so I was excited when a visit with friends to St. Louis allowed me to re-visit the museum and see the completed extension. Fabulous! The minimalist architecture of the new wing was enchanting; I loved how the stark galleries were occasionally interrupted with windows... More

The STL Art Museum contains a fabulous collection of art from classical to modern! Don't miss the new addition too! If you have time, there's lunch in the restaurant or in the cafe'

If it's pretty in Forest park you will want to be outside. The view from the front, the top of the hill is great. If you want to attend and the rest of the family doesn't there is golf and the zoo around the corner down the hill. The Art museum is free except for special exhibits which are reasonably... More

You will not find a more beautiful museum, with a fantastic view of Forest Park below. In the winter months they turn that hill outside into a sledding hill, but with the green grass and lake below it's a fantastic picture spot as well. Inside the museum is grand and the displays are fantastic. St. Louis is proud of our... More

One of the top museums in the United States, it holds an excellent art collection of great variety and diversity. A new wing (2013) has a restaurant ( to be avoided, on account of the poor food and service), spaces for special, travelling exhibitions, and galleries for modern and contemporary art, say, after 1965. The new wing is attractive, with... More

Exceptionally good collection, this museum also has a new space for special exhibits. The French Impressionists exhibit was worth attending (special entrance fee), because of its combination of photography and art and arrangement by theme, rather than period.

A beautiful museum with an incredible collection... With *FREE ADMISSION.* We spent a few hours here in a rainy afternoon, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I think people of all ages would like this museum.

It has an excellent collection. The special exhibit on Impressionist France was unique in combining painting and period photography.

As a New York resident that is use to being surrounded by a nice collection of museums, I was impressed with the collection of artwork in St. Louis. This museum holds a nice variety of artwork from different periods and cultures. The contemporary exhibits were quite impressive and fun to view.
