We have an amazing city with all the free parks and museums available to us. The works of art are world class, housing works by some of the most renowned artists in history. The setting on Art Hill complete the experience.

The St. Louis Art Museum, which is free, has an extraordinary collection of art from all periods. It is one of the world's best museum and well worth visiting.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We probably could have stayed all day. Even the outside of the museum is beautiful.
