This array of more than 80 works is displayed through a series of indoor and outdoor galleries across 105 acres of natural landscape. Admission is always free, picnics are welcome and guided tours are available May through October. 

Peruse the Past

History buffs can take a compelling trip through the past with a visit to the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site. This site was once home to the most sophisticated metropolis north of Mexico including the largest prehistoric earthwork in the Americas. The ruins are located just 15 minutes east of St. Louis and display architecture and public works from the 1400s. 

For residents interested in local traditions, the Missouri History Museum is a nationally acclaimed institution that explores the history of the St. Louis region through in-depth exhibits and events year-round.  

Interact with Animals

Make a short trip with the kids from your new St. Louis home and meet some furry friends face to face at two areas of the zoo. Grant’s Farm showcases hundreds of animals from a half dozen continents, a historic log cabin dating back to the Civil War and live animals roaming the property. Or, visit Purina Farms petting zoo featuring live demonstrations, wagon rides and canine performances. Both are always admission-free. 

Walk Through Space

If you’re a fan of space travel, take a virtual trip across the solar system by visiting the Delmar Loop Planet Walk. Enjoy five-foot-tall signs bearing fun facts about each planet along this proportional scale representation of the solar system. The display runs 2880 feet – the entirety of five downtown St. Louis blocks – taking participants from the Sun to the distant reaches of the planet Neptune.
