Got to enjoy the beautiful museum during a friends wedding in St. Louis. It's a really beautiful building with larger than life sculptures and a close proximity to Forest Park.

Not a big art fan but a beautiful building full of some really great stuff from around the world and from huge artists that even I had heard of. Check it out.

Small museum and I was expecting more. They currently have a Route 66 exhibition which was really good, but the rest was not that great. So an OK museum to visit and perhaps spend no more than 45 mins.

Super hot outside and looking for some AC to cool off? Head to the Missouri History Museum. It's free, it's cool, (in fact downright cold in the exhibits) and it's interesting, too. I wasn't expecting much from this museum, but found it to be pretty...More
