The St. Louis Art Museum is located in Forest Park in a simply wonderful building, a classic. While there was a visiting exhibit of French Impressionism on display when we were there, the permanent collections, though on the small side, is very impressive including works by Picasso, Rodin, Monet, and many, many others. On a very hot afternoon in St. Louis, the Art Museum was a welcomed oasis.

Parking was difficult, so we parked in the garage and that was very pricey. The fact that the restaurant required a reservation, was really the only option there, the café had kinda strange food to try to feed picky eating kids. :)
I love the classics and my kids love going there to see the Mummy's and the Impressionist paintings.
We're going again this year to see the current exhibit. I just hope parking isn't going to be a chore.

I spent 4 hours in the museum. Not long enough but my patient husband is not as avid about art. He was very impressed but his feet and back finally gave out.

Seriously, i've been there at least three times for seeing the whole bunch of awesome paintings. If you are intested in art pretty much, you should not miss it. It worths your time. Btw, the surrounding environment of this museum is very beautiful and peaceful.
