I hadn't been here in several years but was reminded how much I enjoy this place. Honestly, it's much like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY just on a smaller scale. Like many of the Forest Park attractions, admission is free but parking is...More

This Art museum has a wide range of great pieces. It's free and well designed. There is free parking close by. The map was confusing.

We have heard magnificent things about the art museum. It was on my daughter's "must see" list. We went on a Saturday afternoon. My daughter uses a wheelchair, so we had to use the wheelchair accessible entrance, which is a bit from the main entrance....More

It's a free museum, it's quite big, but most of the exhibits are similar to other museums, with little special or modern art display, moreover, when I get lost with my family members, I ask the staff (seems security staff) if the museum can make...More

Free - except for certain limited exhibits - welcome to St. Louis!
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?
