Just some of the many things that make St. Louis great!

St. Louis, Missouri is an amazing place to visit and an even more spectacular place to live. Residents enjoy an affordable cost of living and unparalleled access to cultural institutions.

The visitor and resident friendly reputation of our region is made possible thanks in large part to the Metroplitan Zoological Park and Museum District (ZMD).

Since 1971, residents of St. Louis City and County have generously supported the ZMD. The ZMD is a property tax-supported district governed by an eight member Board of Directors, each appointed for a four-year term by the Mayor of the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis County Executive.

The ZMD distributes funds through five culture sub districts, one of which includes the Saint Louis Science Center. The Science Center is able to offer free general admission to all who enter its doors thanks to the generous support from the residents of the ZMD.

To learn more about the ZMD, visit mzdstl.org.
