This museum has a great collection, well laid out and presented. There are hidden gems throughout, especially in the mid west american sections. The Panorama restaurant is excellent (reserve a table; try to spring pea soup)

Just a wonderful place to visit. Highly recommend this museum as part of a visit to St Louis. The Sunken Cities Exhibit is excellent. We enjoyed browsing and it was a welcome relief from the 95 degree temperature outside!

Friendliest during special events, such as Art in Bloom, when they have targeted activities for children. The rest of the time I would say not so much, like any adult art museum.
