Yeah, the expansion is only one level and very expensive, but it is an almost dichotomy between the 100 year old plus side of the museum and the contemporary and modern side. It looks awesome.

This is a very nice museum with a good variety of different kinds of art. We spent about 2 hours here walking through exhibits. I like that in many of the galleries, there are sculptures or other materials on display with the paintings. For example, a still life in one area also had a cup on the display that was very similar to the one in the painting --- so, really nice to see the comparison.

Being a family with a 14 year old & an 11 year old, we didn't last long. It is what it is. If you are a fan of art & it's your thing then you'll love it. We didn't last long. The nudity made my 11 year old son & my 14 year old daughter quite uncomfortable. Find a free parking spot & walk a little further (otherwise it's $15). It is a very beautiful grounds. Just wasn't our thing.

We live about an hour from St Louis and I just recently visited the STL Art Museum. It's a wonderful museum that is free. We spent several hours with our teenage daughters there and did not get to see everything. Beautiful facilities.
