“Not worth a visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Expected a trove of historical treasures considering the grandeur of the outside structure. A through let down inside. One eight of the museum is dedicated to displaying lingerie. Yes, a History museum chronicling the evolution of women's lingerie. From the Victorian era to the Victoria Secret's times... All this at a location which is a Thomas Jefferson memorial...

“Very nice facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went to the Civil War and Washington exhibit. Very well done and you can learn a lot. They have duplicated what Washington looked like. He was a big man. They addressed the issue of Washington and slavery which gave both sides. A little difficult to find parking space.

“not what it used to be!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We just visited the Mo. History Museum and took my son and his wife and was extremely disappointed. When I was younger and lived in St. Louis we went to this museum frequently and always enjoyed the exhibits. They have limited the musuem to one floor of nothing instead of three floors of great old artifacts. Will not be going back.
