Although only 70 visionaries have been inducted into the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum, the facility is far from an exclusive club. Its aim is to educate everyone on the importance of photographic history?and people certainly seem interested. In 2013, they donated more than $15,000 dollars through Kickstarter to help build the IPHF's new facility.

  • Size: 6,000 square feet of gallery and exhibition space dedicated to the works and equipment of more than 500 artists
  • Eye Catcher: an antique Edison Projecting Kinetoscope
  • Hidden Gems: alongside well-known works by the likes of Ansel Adams are those of Eadweard Muybridge the first to photograph a moving subject?a galloping horse
  • Don't Miss: the library, which houses every issue of Life Magazine published in this dimension
  • Permanent Mainstay: The Photographic Equipment Collection, which includes antique cameras, magic lanterns, and darkroom equipment
  • Visiting Exhibit: Portrait/Process?a collection of contemporary photos, iconic images, and even smartphone portraits that examine voyeurism and photographic approaches
  • Pro Tip: flash-free photography is allowed in galleries and certain exhibits

Every year, the Riverfront Times polls its readers about their favorite St. Louis music venues, restaurants, bars, and more. And every year, after the editorial team tallies up the votes, they throw a party to honor the city's finest movers and shakers. Once upon a time, those were iron workers and brewers, but today, many honorees have distinctly modern passions, from DJing to making coffee and pouring it into the Internet. Revelers toast to these beloved locals while enjoying live entertainment from past winners, as well as platters of bites from local eateries.

Justin Thacker, the muscle-bound founder of The Lab Gym, uses the same principles that motivated him through 19 years of weightlifting experience to spur on and cultivate a community of health-conscious exercisers at his modern, glass-walled gym. His team of expert trainers leads guests through group fitness classes that turn bodies into granite sculptures through a series of weightlifting routines and the crystallization of magma. Patrons can coax coy muscles from epidermal hideouts with free weights, dumbbells, squat racks, and an expansive cardio circuit, all accessible to members by keycard 24 hours a day. Meanwhile, Heavy Metal Crossfit?the gym's in-house CrossFit program?takes a different tack to fitness, leading exercisers ever-changing rotation of high-intensity functional movements.

For custom guidance, guests can pair up with a personal trainer or can sign up for the structured Laser weight-loss program, a regimen designed to blast off pounds with a laser focus but without actual lasers.
