We visited for a special exhibit: Degas to Mucha. What a wonderful surprise! This was an exquisitely curated exhibit with items from Degas, Coro, Picasso, Mucha. They even had video of dancers from the late 1800's. Parking and the museum are free.

Even if you just have one day, this was my favorite place in St Louis (and I had 5 days). Great, interesting, beautiful modern & contemporary art museum. Staff is great and the temporary exhibits are very nicely curated and enjoyable. Don´t miss it.
