About
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.

So beautiful, old Victorian style mansion. A must see when visiting St. Louis.
Apr 2020
I just love the elegance and charm of this Victorian mansion. All of the rooms are renovated and decorated in the period. Also, love the garden area. A lot of history, a must see.

I was exploring and ventured upon this super unique museum. Victoria was an excellent host and very knowledgeable tour guide. I'd love to come back to see the full house after renovations are complete...and next time bring friends!!

Well worth the adventure!

A treasure!
Feb 2020
We took advantage of the free day to visit the Campbell House and so glad we did. Our tour guide was excellent and answered all of our questions. The orginial furniture and art work was an added bonus as many places today do not have the orginial items. Parking is limited but there is plently of parking on the near by streets. I will gladly pay the admission fee next time I visit as it is well worth the $8 they charge. The history of the family is very interesting. So, if you want to see how the rich lived in St. Louis go see the Campbell House.

One of the best historic homes I have seen
Dec 2018
Mr. Campbell made his money in fur trading in the era of John Jacob Astor. He built an impressive home for his wife and three children which is lovely to see. But the best thing about the home is the high percentage of original furnishings and possessions of the family. The Campbells were personal friends of Julia Dent, who married Ulysses Grant. When the Grants visited to Campbells, they had a special china service made produced for the dinner. It is one of many things on display.

This house is a St Louis gem, furnished with an amazing amount of original pieces. Beautiful home and grounds. The nesting hawks that call Campbell House their home were beautiful to observe as well! Our guide Victoria, was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for the beauty and wonder of the house and grounds made the tour exciting and fun! Thank her for an excellent experience!

A hidden gem
May 2019 • Friends
The Campbell House museum is a large townhouse-type of house that was owned by the same family for most of its life. It is wonderful that the majority of the furnishings are original to the home. The guide is very knowledgeable with a wealth of information on the history of the house and the family that owned it. Definitely a hidden gem.

We loved this tour. Absolutely beautiful home with original furnishings. Loved the glassware, carpets, walls. I'm so glad I stumbled onto it on a hot, rainy day.

Interesting History
Jun 2019 • Couples
This house looks somewhat small from the street, but it is actually quite large. The tour took us through the carriage house, then the main house. From the street you would never guess it has 7 levels, not floors. The family history as well as that of the surrounding area are fascinating. We were told to return around Christmas as the house is fully decorated for the season.
