  • Free museum where you can learn more about the local St Louis history. Rotating special exhibits help bring something new from time to time. Great brunch available but get reservations!
  • What a wonderful museum, great exhibits like Route 66 & Little Black Dress (this one will be gone after Labor Day), the History Clubhouse, just for children, 1904 Worlds Fair exhibit, and a few more! The gift shop is amazing, if you don't buy, you will definitely want to browse! The cafe and restaurants have lots of good things to eat, definitely a great way to spend an afternoon
  • Was here during an exhibit on the history of route 66 and a fashion history of the little black dress. Whats really impressive about this museum other than the beautiful park its situated in and the excellent curating is the fact that its entry is free. Be sure to donate when entering to keep such wonderful public services available for all.
  • I love visiting the History Museum! The exhibits and extra program's are always captivating. There us something different everytime to experience.
  • The children's area was a blast for my 2yr old to play in. Great way to get kids excited about history. A great experience for all ages. Learn something and have fun doing it!
