The art collection is equal to those found in major art museums around the world. Be prepared to spend the day wondering through the exhibits.

Great place for kids and adults alike. Check it out for the art but has other family friendly things to do inside for kids.

There is something quite magical about the St. Louis Art Museum. From the moment you enter the front door you are drawn in by the tranquility and beauty of the building and its surroundings. There are so many different collections and displays that it's hard to isolate just one for review. Take the necessary time to meander throughout the building... More

Not only is the view from the steps of the museum beautiful, the interior mirrors the pleasure one receives from viewing the display of major works of art. The restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

The museum is spotlessly clean and gorgeous on the grounds and inside. We visited on Saturday and enjoyed strolling through all the galleries featuring the works of Rembrandt, Picasso, Andy Warhol, as well as several pieces of art done by local artisans in the St. Louis area. The facility is handicapped friendly and child friendly and a nice way to... More

I have visited here many times but took our 10 yr old granddaughter this time. We thought she would whiz through in 30 min. but we stayed over 2 hrs. This is a wonderful place to introduce a variety of styles to a young person. They even had a table with a paper for a children's scavenger hunt which she... More

Perfect snowy day activity with visiting teen-aged grandchildren. Membership allowed us to visit the special exhibit for free and to stroll through a number of other galleries. We had a good discussion after visiting several galleries, including the contemporary collection: Is it art? Always interesting to talk about what we are looking at and how it fits into our cultural... More
