“Wyeth-Tootle Mansion”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

The "St Joseph Museum" is actually the 1879 Wyeth-Tootle Mansion and is operated by St Joseph Museum, Inc. The photo above is from the Patee House.

This mansion/museum is only open on Fridays & Saturdays and is worth the visit.

The first floor, with its large rooms opening into the central hall, was originally used mainly for entertaining and is now available for rental and is used for events like wedding receptions and dinners. The rooms are beautiful.

The second floor was the family bedrooms, and now features a restored Victorian bedroom and exhibits portraying aspects of St. Joseph history including exhibits on the Civil War in St. Joseph and the life and death of Jesse James.

The third floor, originally the servants quarters, now contains exhibits on the natural history of the area.

“Fantastic Museum!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

The set up of this museum is wonderful! My six year old loved it as well. Something for all ages here. We had family from Ohio with us that have been to many before and say hands down this is the best one the have seen! We thought it was cool that American Pickers had even toured this one. Lots of history in St Jo, please come check it out.

“Good place”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Actually this is not the St. Joseph Museum, this is the Patee House Museum, this is a good one and you can get into a search and find, you go around the place searching for something in a exibit that is out of the ordinary

“Support this place”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Please don't drive by this museum based on negative comments. There's much more to
this museum than meets the eye- lots of history and incredible information about a part of society that's mostly misunderstood. Curious? Go by, donate to their cause, then look at the plans they
have for a major expansion project that will propel it into the "Big Deal" world of museums.
Great people there, too.
