Economic Impact
The Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District

St. Louis Science Center OmnimaxThe Zoo Museum District is an excellent investment by citizens in both quality of life and the economic vitality of the region – an investment that will benefit current residents and future generations for years to come. The five District institutions not only provide vitality to the St. Louis region’s quality of life, but they have a strong impact on its economy.

The institutions are significant employers and are fantastic attractions that draw out-of-town visitors. The St. Louis Regional Chamber & Growth Association estimates that the Zoo Museum District and its five institutions’ operating and capital spending, along with spending by visitors, had a total regional economic impact of $549 million and was responsible for 6,950 jobs within the region in 2007.

The influence of the District and its member institutions on our community’s quality of life and our region’s economic wellbeing is enormous. These institutions now have an economic impact of more than half a billion dollars each year in the St. Louis region.
