About the Museum

The Saint Louis Art Museum, founded in 1879, is home to fine and decorative art spanning five millennia and six continents. The museum attracts thousands of visitors each year to its wide ranging collection and innovative exhibitions. The original beaux-arts building was designed for the 1904 World's Fair, but after more than a century of acquisitions, the museum required more space and asked architect David Chipperfield to design an extension. The East Building opened in 2013. In addition to extensive holdings of fine and decorative art from Europe and Asia, the museum boasts a large collection of Native American art and African American art reaching from the early 19th century to the present day.
