Saint Louis Art Museum
The Saint Louis Art Museum has the largest collection of artwork on display in the city, with three floors featuring a variety of styles of artwork from all over the world. The first floor has artwork from all of the continents. The second has more traditional artwork such as paintings, Christian art, sculptures and special exhibits. The third floor has abstract and contemporary art. There are only a few works by the more famous artists, but the collection is so vast that art lovers are bound to see something they will like.

We went to DC a couple of years ago and went to most of the Smithsonian properties and the Gallery of Art there. Though the collection in St. Louis is not as comprehensive as the art museums in DC, there are some very significant pieces, including a few by Van Gogh. The physical setting of the museum is fantastic, part of St. Louis' Forest Park complex. A great way to spend an afternoon.
Built as part of the 1904 World's Fair, the St. Louis Art Museum is as amazing today as it must have been then. Constantly changing exhibits, something for everyone, an incredible gift shop, great restaurants, fabulous special events. And, for the most part, it's free or cheap! I've been all over the country in every art museum I can get to, and this one tops my list for value and for aesthetic treats. Thank you, St. Louis for treasuring your treasure.
It's free. That's among the best part. In the middle of Forest Park, and right out the front is the hill overlooking the Basin. Plenty to see in the museum, too. From Egyptian to Medieval to chairs. Definatly worth a stop. No doubt.
