St. Louis Art Museum

You could spend several days at the St. Louis Art Museum but we only spent a few hours. There are two buildings and three floors, we went in both buildings but only on the first floor. The amount of beautiful artwork is outstanding! Right outside the front doors of the Museum is the beautiful Emerson Grand Basin and Art Hill. My favorite piece was Breaking of Vessels, below I posted the story make sure you scroll almost all the way to the bottom to read the story!

The Missouri History Museum

My family visited The Missouri History Museum one of the nights it was open late. Ever since I was a child, History has been a favorite subject of mine, so whenever we travel I try to visit as much of the local History I can!  The museum is free to visit but a few of the exhibits had a small admission fee. My favorite exhibit was The 1904 World’s Fair: Looking Back at Looking Forward, since Forest Park was the Location of The 1904 World’s Fair we were very interested in learning more about the World’s Fair. Another very interesting exhibit was Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello: Paradox of Liberty. This exhibit was organized by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation at Monticello in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. We decided not to take pictures in the Slavery Exhibit out of respect for the people and their families that were affected by slavery.

The Missouri History Museum is a great destination for the whole family and with the extended hours at night the perfect date spot!

St. Louis Trip Overview

We went to St. Louis, MS. in October and I am just now getting around to blogging about it. We had no idea all of the different things to see and do in St. Louis. We had never been to St. Louis and we were shocked to find all of the different cultural experiences to be had in this fine City!  In the short time we spent there we visited The St. Louis Art Museum, The St. Louis Zoo, The Missouri History Museum, The St. Louis Science Center, and  Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis all of which were free. Many of the attractions we visited were in Forest Park, Forest Park was the site of The Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904 and the 1904 Summer Olympics. We also enjoyed just a few of the many wonderful restaurants. In the next few weeks I will be posting a more indepth look at our stay in St. Louis. Below is just a snippet of our stay in St. Louis.
