My husband and I just relocated to St. Louis and we wanted to explore the city and came upon the Jefferson Barracks civil war museum. It was so nice and peaceful, very informative. I recommend it to everyone. The staff were very nice and greeting.

With so much history any militarily vet would be proud to find this as a final resting place. Paying respect to those who served as far back as the Civil War. That's right I said the Civil War and so many unknown soldiers. Simply magnificent.

I grew up close to this park and still enjoy it to this day! Lots of open space, wonderful river views and walking paths in addition to the museums and the ampatheater that hold summer concerts!

J. B. as it is known in St. Louis, was used during the war to house and train our military. Overlooking the great Mississippi river, it now acts as a national Cemetery that is adorned with red, white and blue American flags on Memorial day. A tribute to our fallen who given their lives so we can be safe and... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Jefferson Barracks Historic Park. The museums were well done and free, although donations are greatly appreciated. The staff, mostly volunteers, was very friendly and willing to engage. Museums hours are limited, so check before going. Right now they are open Wed. - Sun. 12:00 noon till 4:00 p.m. We enjoyed learning the history of... More

It is very well kept up and is just so serene. It is also the burial home for Jack Buck the famous Cardinal announcer. This is a very... More

The museum was very interesting with good films and small but interesting and informative exhibits. Follow up with a drive through the National Cemetery makes for a interesting and meaningful tour.

Excellent museum at the Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis, MO. Reasonable entry fee and 80% of gift shop purchases goes to upkeep and renovations of the museum building and the old post exchange next door. The cemetery and surrounding park are beautful. Great traditional Army parade field. We will definitely go again should we return to MO!

My mother drove me over here to see where our family was laid to rest. Those from our family who served were many. Death is the saddest concept known to man, but whoever handles the upkeep is doing an amazing job. The view of the many correctly and perfectly aligned tombstones just takes your breath away. The wall of deceased... More
