Went and saw the exhibit on the history of St Louis and thought it was very impressive. I grew up in the metro and had a lot of history shared with me from my parents and grandparents dating back to the late 1800s, but I still learned about many places, people and events I was not aware of. In addition,... More

My best friend and her son met my daughter and I to start our Spring Break weekend in St. Louis at the Missouri History Museum for the Irish Dancers and Music event to honor St. Patrick's day. This was AWESOME! There was a Classical Music and Arts school that had setup an event with students to entertain and share the... More

As museums go, this one is just okay. If you want to learn about St. Louis, this is the place to go. If you live in St. Louis, you should spend at least one afternoon there learning about your city. They have two exhibit halls that rotate exhibits from around the world on regular basis. These are very hit and... More

Stopped in here today for about 90 minutes. The display for the 250th anniversary of Saint Louis is outstanding, as was the World Fair exhibition. Beautiful building, free, and very interesting, informational, and educational. Would recommend and will definitely return.

A definite stop and it's free. Count on spending two hours easily. St. Louis is celebrating 250 years. This museum has rotating exhibits. No parking fee. Go early for it gets busy quick.

If you've got a week or so to spend in St. Louis, this museum would be fine. But if you don't have much time and you want to find essential places to visit in St. Louis, this would not be a good place for you. The exhibits are fine and we enjoyed the world fair exhibit, but we felt it... More

We visited the museum as part of our day in Forest Park and it was definitely what I was looking foward to the most and it did not disappoint! The parking and admission were free, but I definitely would have paid to go here! There were exhibits on the World's Fair, Thomas Jefferson, St. Louis History leading up to 1904... More
