Location Description:

Some people will tell you the 1904 World's Fair was the last great thing to happen to St. Louis. But it was the profits from that international expo that built the World's Fair Pavilion — in 1909. Perched high atop Government Hill, the World's Fair Pavilion is just one gem within Forest Park. Other popular sites and attractions include the Saint Louis Zoo, Saint Louis Art Museum, Art Hill, Norman K. Probstein Community Golf Course, Missouri History Museum, the Muny, Saint Louis Science Center, the Jewel Box and much more.
