ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - The Saint Louis Art Museum will be closed for the rest of the day due to a power outage.
According to Matt Hathaway, a spokesman for the museum, the power went out around 8:45 a.m. The only people in the museum at the time were staffers and those with 'early visitor' access.
Staff helped guide visitors out of the building once it became clear the power was not coming back on.
Hathaway could not confirm why the power went out, but said the outage was an Ameren Missouri issue and not a museum issue.
The Saint Louis Art Museum is expected to reopen Wednesday at 10 a.m. as scheduled.
