Saint Louis, Missouri Attractions

Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Saint Louis and the surrounding area. The generically-named City Museum, perversely, is the city's most quirky destination, but St. Louis also has its own wax museum and an impressive roster of strange public art. Just across the river is Alton, IL, which claims to be the most haunted town in America.
