Featuring a collection of more than 30,000 works of art, Saint Louis Art Museum counts among one of the country's major art institutions, attracting over half a million visitors each year. Erected for the 1904 World's Fair, the three-story building went through a massive restoration project in 2009 in which 21 new galleries were added, some for each of its permanent collection and temporary exhibits. The museum's star attraction is its modern art collection, including works by European masters Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse, and Gauguin. Don't miss the gallery dedicated to 20th century German paintings that features the world's biggest collection of works by Max Beckmann, plus pieces by Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, and Martin Kippenberger.

  • The building itself is wonderful. The collection is vaste and expands over a large period of time. The art from the last century is the best part. I love the Anslam Kiefer and the Louise Bourgeoise...

  • Beautiful museum with amazing artworks. The building itself is fascinating. Such a really gorgeous place that it's located in...a must see! Loved everything I saw inside. The employees were really friendly. A true jewel of Saint Louis. Also, it’s free!
  • It was an incredibly experience, there was an incredibly larger variety of pieces including some of Picasso’s work. The space was amazing and the gift shops were actually affordable. My partner bought me a beautiful hiroshige plum blossom jewelry box. The employees and staff were just wonderful and informative. I highly recommend going here and having a picnic at forest park after. I think it’s an incredibly place that should be highlighted much more.
