Missouri History Museum

Missouri History Museum

Located in beautiful Forest Park, the Missouri History Museum is dedicated to preserving and educating the public on the lives and histories of those who called St. Louis home. Ideal for adult groups and field trips alike, the Missouri History Museum combines interactive technological displays with artwork, historic artifacts, documents, and photographs to create a comprehensive and true look at Missouri through time.

The museum encourages learning through permanent and temporary exhibitions like Seeking St. Louis, a continuing exhibit that looks at more than 200 years of St. Louis history through interactive exhibits, photographs, and dioramas. The 1904 World’s Fair: Looking Back at Looking Forward is a permanent exhibit on the famous World’s Fair that was held in St. Louis in Forest Park over a hundred years ago. This fascinating piece of time represents the industrial and commercial golden age of St. Louis as memorialized in Judy Garland’s famous movie Meet Me in St. Louis.

History Clubhouse, a learning center for children, is now open daily from 10 am-4 pm at the museum. The children’s section was designed in conjunction with local families that desired a place for their children to learn about history and foster education in the community. Added to the interactive galleries, the children will also benefit from scheduled story time and events through Family Nights.

Update of current temporary exhibits:

  • Muny Memories: 100 Seasons Onstage (open through June 2, 2019)
  • Flores Mexicanas: A Lindbergh Love Story (June 1, 2019–September 2, 2019)
  • Pulitzer Prize Photographs (August 3, 2019–January 20, 2020)
  • The Mighty Mississippi (November 23, 2019–April 18, 2021)
