Very good art museum, and like many other St. Louis museums, it's free. Also, there's free wifi here which is useful since cell service can be spotty. Very interesting collections and gets access to special exhibits that are worthy of museums in much bigger cities....More

It had been more than 10 years since I had been to the art museum. It is free to go, but be prepared to walk for free parking. We opted to pay for parking in the garage.

A must see place to visit and have lunch (make a reservation). I love the impressionists. Wonderful arts, and fine art crafts, the period rooms seem to be out of place.

This is a tap class museum with exceptional works of art. You need at least three hours to go through it. If you come on a Friday beware. Fridays are free. If there is a special exhibit you have to get tickets before hand online....More

Friendliest during special events, such as Art in Bloom, when they have targeted activities for children. The rest of the time I would say not so much, like any adult art museum.
