Missouri History Museum
One of the most visited history museums in the nation, the Missouri History Museum looks at the history of the St. Louis region from the Mississippian people up to the present day. The Museum’s historic building was the first national monument to Thomas Jefferson, and opened to the public in 1913 on the site of the entrance to the 1904 World’s Fair. Visitors can discover the city’s baseball history from the Browns to the Cardinals, see “The Spirit of St. Louis” — sister plane to Lindbergh’s, explore life on the Mississippi River, marvel at the magnitude of the 1904 World’s Fair, learn about the Civil Rights movement, and much more. The Museum’s History Clubhouse exhibit is nearly 6,000 square feet of hands on and immersive history experiences for children. Collecting for 150 years, MHM has one of the largest collections of artifacts and historical materials of any regional history museum in the country and is committed to creating and hosting the most dynamic and engaging history exhibitions, which rotate throughout the year.
