We went here after hearing from our friends that the museum was significantly improved from what it was a few years ago. I'm not sure I would call it a "Missouri History" museum as much as a "St. Louis History" museum, but it was great...More

We were able to make it to this museum on a Tuesday after dinner because they're open until 8. We were there for 2 hours and found it very educational. We especially enjoyed the civil rights exhibit.

I love as you walk in there is a huge airplane hanging from the ceiling. I like the room all about the 1906 st. Louis wolrds fair.

Cultural exhibits are housed in this beautiful building at one entrance to the park. St. Louis's civil rights path was interesting as well as the Route 66. Definitely stop into this one while in the park.
