St. Louis has one of the great zoos and museum districts in the world. Admission to the zoo, art museum, and history museum are free. The institutions are supported by property taxes imposed on St. Louis city and county residents.
Residents of the surrounding counties should either chip in or have to pay an admission. We are a region and these institutions should be supported regionally. If someone joins one of these institutions on their own and pays an annual membership, they should get free admission. Written by Paul Dribin
