Got out of a business meeting early and spent an hour here before my flight. This is a really great art museum. I highly recommend it even if you only have an hour. It is also on the way to the airport from down town.

Soooo big and spread out. Hard to find a couple of exhibits. Kids got bored after one floor. Lots of variety between cultures, artistic styles, sculptures, furniture...tons of variety.

I went to college in St. Louis and spent many weekends in the St. Louis Art Museum, but they've made many changes since then. The new east wing has improved the overall experience greatly. The additional space has let the museum rearrange the art, and...More

St. Louis has one of those venerable Midwestern collections that benefitted from the vast local industrial wealth of the 19th and 20th centuries. While the museum is not quite as big as the Met, National Gallery or Louvre, it is not that far behind and...More

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?
