The Missouri History Museum, created and supported by the Missouri Historical Society, makes the stories of Missouri’s past visible and memorable.  The Missouri History Museum contains information about St. Louis’s history from its founding to the present and features family-friendly activities that teach kids about steamboats, life in Cahokia, and skyscrapers.  Learn about St. Louis’s 1904 World’s Fair and its legacy in a new exhibit that allows visitors to “relive the wonder” of the Fair.  The Museum also presents “Twilight Thursdays,” an outdoor concert series on the newly renovated North Plaza that showcases local musicians and bands.  Educational programs within the museum highlight the diverse population of St. Louis and make history accessible to visitors of all ages.  Admission to the museum is free.
