Free. Small. Changing exhibits. I didn't particularly care for the exhibit being shown. What was impressive was the highly engaging and knowledgeable staff. They have all been very well trained and seem to truly know their job and love art.

are the 3 thinks that St. Louis has that can not be found anywhere else in the world. I have been visiting the Pulitzer since it first opened. It had very limited hours in it's early days but now it is open everyday. It is an amazing space designed by Tadao Ando as a place of contemplation to hand the... More

This is a small museum that offers a different experience than most galleries...it's not a big space and there aren't very many pieces on exhibit, which creates an intense focus on what is there. The staff is very interactive if you want so you can engage with them or just pass through. Quiet but dramatic architecture that invites exploration. This... More

This is a really nice, not too big gallery. They are showing the works of Italian early 20th Century sculptor, Medardo Rosso. Beautifully curated.

Multiple other installations were also thought provoking and delicious to the senses. Sometimes, this level of conceptualism in art can come across as much-ado-about-next-to-nothing, but the pieces at the Pulitzer were genuinely absorbing, challenging, and in some cases delightful. The space is pleasing, the staff welcoming, and the museum is free. What a marvelous cultural jewel.

Not sure why, this museum is not one of my favorites. Big concrete building, doesn't have much character in my opinion, and the exhibits in the lower level are claustrophobic. Looking at other reviews, I see many people love it so for some reason it is not resonating with me.

Such a spectacular architectural jewel provided a stunning setting for beautifully curated exhibitions of Calder, Tuttle and Sandback exhibitions. A must see! And admission is free.

The Calder exhibit brought us to St. Louis and it didn't disappoint. It looked so at home in this amazing art space. We visited with our kids (7and 9) and found the staff welcoming and helpful. We had missed the tour, but got lots of stories and tidbits of information from the staff scattered throughout the exhibit halls. Yes, they... More

So impressive! This strikingly gorgeous modern building adds to the beauty of the art on display here without detracting from it. Friendly, knowledgeable docents are present in every room to answer questions and add to your viewing experience. Don't miss the Richard Serra sculpture in the courtyard!

The only negative is the limited hours -- Wed-Sat. If you hate the current exhibition, the architecture and three permanent pieces will enchant you -- Blue Black by Ellsworth Kelly, a stone bench by the pool and Joe by Richard Serra. The architecture of the building is worth the trip. The architect, Tadao Ando, won the Pritzker during his short... More
