Overview

Since opening on February 6, 1943, the Campbell House Museum has served the greater St. Louis area as one of America's premier historic property museums. The Museum not only preserves the Campbell's house, but also their collection of original furniture, fixtures, paintings, objects and thousands of pages of family documents. Included in these documents is a unique album of 60 photographs of the interior of the house taken in about 1885. In 2005 the Museum completed a meticulous five-year restoration that returned the building to its opulent 1880s appearance, when the house was one of the centers of St. Louis society.

Awesomely authentic 1850's French. That is way before Picasso and the Bohemians in Paris. Perfect study of the times, the Saint Louis housing market and the stark line between the American wild West and the civilization of European capitals. Robert Campbell's family was part of...More

The initial impression of the home shows a modest exterior, but the home sure is large once you go through the inside! Our guides do a great job and we appreciate your kind review!

I’ve visited many historic homes. This one is remarkable. Built and furnished in the 1850’s, the family kept it as is until the 1930’s. In the 1930’s, the house and contents were auctioned off. A conservation foundation stepped up and purchased 95% of the contents....More

What a wonderful tour and amazing experience a trip through this house is. It looks like an unpretentious row house in an area of town you would not walk through at night. In fact, it is the only row house still standing in the area....More
