Variety of exhibits and galleries to meet most interest. The staff was helpful and maintained order discreetly. The Cafe provide good, fairly priced food. Good place to enjoy and reflect on talents and creativity throughout history.

This museum has high quality examples of all sorts of art and objects; from Monet and Renoir to American Indian moccasins. Be aware there is free, as well as pay, parking. Unless you plan to eliminate some types of objects, be prepared to spend a whole day.

All I have to say is wow!!! What an awesome collection and you get to see it for free!!! You have classic artwork that is within reach. Take the kids and show them what real art looks like.

Hubby and I could have spent days there! It would take a long time to see everything in this museum. We spent about 2 hours there last Saturday. We picked out what we wanted to see most of all and focused on that. The Egyptian area and the arms (weapons) area were some of our favorites. As far as paintings... More

We are transplants from Washington DC and the East Coast and did not expect such a beautiful art museum on such beautiful grounds. A gem that compares to Art museums in DC, Philadelphia and New York; and none can compare to the view of Forest Park from the bluff it sits on. A marvelous collection of modern art. Allow at...

The art museum was wonderful but the park/land in front of the museum was breathtaking! We were there in the fall when the trees were changing colors. Could not have been prettier!

My teen granddaughter asked me to take her. A well-rounded art museum with a little bit of everything. No major exhibit when we visited, so we got a 'taste' of everything from paintings, to sculptures, to artifacts from many different times and cultures. Perfect to spark an interest in "The Arts". Museum itself is beautiful and in a wonderful setting... More

A world class art museum that has just gotten bigger and better than ever. I hadn't been here in a while and it is so much bigger now. But the best thing is you can park your car. Why, because there is paid parking.

The last time I visited here was on a field trip when I was in school. This museum has so many artifacts from all over the world, it's astounding! Be prepared to stay most of the dY. Sadly, we only had a morning free and didn't get through half of what is offered here. There is a nice cafe, a... More
