I did not do this museum justice. I'd had a hard day and only limited time, but I'd heard how good it was, so I went anyway. I'm so glad I did. I saw the newly installed Renaissance Gallery and loved it. I breezed through the rest of the main floor and was amazed at the depth of the collection. I was a little too overwhelmed to really appreciate it, but I knew I was privileged to be there.
I'm blown away that this is a free museum. Huzzah to the City of St. Louis. Sometimes people think free means it's not worth a visit. Go ahead, donate $20 a person and pretend it was the entrance fee if that will make you feel better, but don't doubt the value of this collection.
I was ragged by the time I made it through the main floor, but I love Decorative Arts, so I drug myself down a stairwell to see it. Thank God!! Loved the porcelain, the furniture, the period rooms, the stained glass. It nearly killed me, but if it had, it would have been a happy death. Go see this museum. I know I'm going to get back there somehow to get a better look at it.
