Art Museum
Featuring a collection of more than 30,000 works of art, Saint Louis Art Museum counts among one of the country's major art institutions, attracting over half a million visitors each year. Erected for the 1904 World's Fair, the three-story building went through a massive restoration project in 2009 in which 21 new galleries were added, some for each of its permanent collection and temporary exhibits. The museum's star attraction is its modern art collection, including works by European masters Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse, and Gauguin. Don't miss the gallery dedicated to 20th century German paintings that features the world's biggest collection of works by Max Beckmann, plus pieces by Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, and Martin Kippenberger.

  • 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 at...  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.  more »

  • Everything about this place was absolutely beautiful. Excellent collection of artwork from all over the world. Very well organized and easy to navigate. Peaceful with friendly staff. This is definitely something to put on your to-do list while in the St. Louis, MO area!
  • St. Louis is so fortunate to have such an amazing art museum. The special exhibits ate always very interesting and educational. They have about 2 special exhibits a year and I highly recommend everyone to go to all of them! Overall, the museum has so much artwork from all over the world that it's almost impossible to see it all in a day. I go here at least twice a month and always have a good time.
  • Beautiful and has many fantastic exhibits. They recently added a modern art portion, parking garage, and cafe as well. Keep up with all of the events they have! Sometimes they have live performances and such!
  • We had a wonderful visit. We discovered all the hats. It was a perfect day.
  • Amazing collection of fine art from all periods of time. The Monet and Van Gogh paintings are breathtaking. The museum is pristine and full of art everyone could find something that they like, and this is not to mention how fascinating their contemporary art wing that has been recently added is. This museum has free admission and you will often see art lovers of all ages painting and drawing and talking about art here, which is really lovely. One of the best museums I've ever been to.
