A wonderful special exhibit at the Stl. Art Museum is currently on view in the special exhibition galleries. Great show for the entire family. All kinds of wonderful objects created by talented but "unschooled" and "naieve" artists who love to create things, often from scratch...More

We always seem to end up here when visiting St. Louis...as a good counterpoint to baseball? A little sports plus a little culture? In any event, the Forest Park setting is wonderful and it's always a pleasure to spend a few hours at the art...More

Free - except for certain limited exhibits - welcome to St. Louis!
My mother and I will be coming here next Friday and also have tickets to the extra exhibit. She is an art teacher and could spend all day here. I on the other hand, could do a 30 minute walk through and feel like I've seen it all. Knowing my flat footed, pregnant self, I don't plan to stay with her the whole time. Is there a good place to sit and read a book and any food there?
