The Art Museum is one of the treasures of St. Louis. Its special exhibits are often fantastic, and the permanent collection is magnificent. I love the small changing exhibits in the textile gallery, the magnificent English portraits, the Impressionists, the Asian art, the classical sculpture, and the well-selected contemporary art. There is something here for everyone. The gift shop is one of the best I have seen in any museum in the country: great jewelry and clothing, an excellent selection of art books and children's toys. Everyone on the staff is helpful, and special lectures and programs augment the art. And it's free! The basement cafe and the restaurant in the new addition have good new menus. Free parking outside, and a garage for bad weather.
