My husband and I recently visited St Charles and had a simply marvelous time at the First Missouri State Capitol. It’s a Missouri state historic site, and administered by park rangers. We paid $4.50 each for admission for a REALLY good tour; our guide was Dominic, and he was very knowledgeable about local history as well as relative world events... More

This is the original Missouri State Capitol set up like it was about 170-190 years ago before it was moved to Jefferson City. Inside and outside are pretty much the same except for electricity and AC in some spots.

You are guided through a row of several buildings. They give you the history, show you examples, and you learn a lot.

We went to the Visitor's Center and borrowed a pre-loaded iPod that guided us and informed us about the various historic buildings (this was free). This is a very charming area.

This place seemed to get crowded at various times over the weekend we visited. However, there is alot of history and interesting information to be found here. Definitely worth checking out while in St. Charles.

The kids and I were just walking down Main Street one day and I said, "Let's stop in here." Little did I know they were celebrating Missouri's birthday and we were directed out back to enjoy some activities. One was to show how to start fire with a flint rock, which my daughter loved. Another was to explore the old... More
