The Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the nation's leading comprehensive art museums containing more than 30,000 objects. Its collections include works of art of exceptional quality from virtually every culture and time period. Areas of notable depth include Oceanic art, pre-Columbian art, ancient Chinese bronzes, and European and American art of the late 19th century and 20th century, with particular strength in German painting. The Museum offers a full range of exhibitions and educational programming generated independently as well as in collaboration with local, national, and international partners.

An extensive European collection including Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, and Gauguin.

A gallery of medieval art and artifacts.

A collection of Renaissance masterpieces.

Period Rooms which present "a snapshot in time" of six time periods in history with artwork, furniture and decorative pieces such as pottery and vases.

The world's largest collection of works by Max Beckmann and George Caleb Bingham

Location: On Art Hill in the western end of Forest Park, six miles west of downtown St. Louis.

Especially for Kids:
