  • Enjoyed the museum very much. Several exhibits that were fascinating. The most enjoyable was the wizard of Oz exhibit and the mint. I think everyone could find something to enjoy here. Parking was sufficient. Be prepared to do a lot of walking
  • I cannot express enough how grateful I am that St. Louis has this gem. The Clubhouse for kids is so amazing, with numerous interactive exhibits for young kids. My children love it and we frequent regularly, especially in the winter months
