View the Spirit of St Louis and the original Jefferson Memorial. Very simple museum. A small wing on the World’s fair, Panorama pictures, and a couple other areas. Free and cool.

One of the many free venues housed inside Forest Park; excellent option for a free cheap date. However, parking can be challenging at times, due to park events and construction projects.

This museum is not that large. Our favorite part of the museum was the first section. It contained so much information about the Worlds Fair that took place in St. Louis.
