The property is perfect for events, we attended a wedding. It's large, clean and very impressive. Cocktails on the patio outside, dinner in the main hall and dancing in a side chamber were all accommodated with class. I wish we could have toured the museum a little more but what we did see was very tantalizing. This is a world... More

Wide variety of items to see from Egyptian items, paintings, and special exhibits. I went for the Impressionist exhibit that was there for a short time and was SOOOO disappointed and appalled I had to pay that much for what it was. While that was disappointing I enjoyed everything else and its a beautiful building as well with some of... More

The Museum has a bit of everything--European Art, Egyptian mummies, American Art from various periods. It's a small sampling of many styles--a nice overview of art. Set in a beautiful park, on the outskirts of town. And it's Free

There is so much to see in the museum that an afternoon wasn't long enough. Definitely worth the time indoors to experience so many exceptional exhibits, and the metal tree outside was noteworthy as well.

We saw a very good Native American display of clothes, beadwork, tools, etc. On the lower floor we saw the mummies and a really... More

This museum is a gem, hidden in plain sight in Forest Park. The German expressionist collection is perhaps one of the best outside of Germany itself.
