Laumeier Sculpture Park is a 105 acre open air museum that attracts over 300,000 visitors annually. Beginning as a bequeath of almost 76 acres to St. Louis County by Mrs. Matilda Laumeier in memory of her husband, Henry, the park is now accredited by the American Association of Museums as an institution of international significance and one of only a handful of open-air museums found in the world. The Laumeier Sculpture Park offers year round and changing exhibits of modern and contemporary sculpture, annual events such as the Art Fair that is held over Mother's Day weekend, educational programs such as the summer Art Camp for children and special events including musical concerts held at LOMA (Laumeier Outdoor Music Amphitheater) and lecture series. Admission to the park is free, but docent-guided walking tours can be reserved for a fee or visitors can take a self-guided audio tour by renting an iPod from the Museum shop.
