I love as you walk in there is a huge airplane hanging from the ceiling. I like the room all about the 1906 st. Louis wolrds fair.

Cultural exhibits are housed in this beautiful building at one entrance to the park. St. Louis's civil rights path was interesting as well as the Route 66. Definitely stop into this one while in the park.
