Wonderful place to visit, lots of different exhibits, really friendly people. I could have used more history but when I went it was mostly an art exhibit

Stopped by while waiting for the Basillica Cathedral to open. Educational experience and overall fun.

Great to have it in town. For any chess lover came across St. Louis, definitely recommend a photo with the World's Largest Chess Piece. Well it used to be 14 ft piece, and since that was beaten for the tallest, from April 12th 2018, they replaced with a 20 ft Chess King. A new Guinness record.

Awesome place to visit. Would be better if a person was allowed into the playing hall.
