There is a lot to see at the Museum and you should plan on spending at least a greater portion of you day and maybe the whole day seeing all the art and other exhibits the Art Museum has to offer.

The Saint Louis Art Museum has an extensive gallery of paintings sculptures and artifacts. The collection ranges from 2000 BC to contemporary modern. A very good deal, since it is free and open every day but Monday from 10am to 5pm.

The art collection is equal to those found in major art museums around the world. Be prepared to spend the day wondering through the exhibits.

Free - except for certain limited exhibits - welcome to St. Louis!
My mother and I will be coming here next Friday and also have tickets to the extra exhibit. She is an art teacher and could spend all day here. I on the other hand, could do a 30 minute walk through and feel like I've seen it all. Knowing my flat footed, pregnant self, I don't plan to stay with her the whole time. Is there a good place to sit and read a book and any food there?
