I grew up in J.B. when I was about ten years old we used to sneak into the building. We called it the old court house because of the two lamppost at the entrance of the steps. What we discovered it was really a gymnasium for the military at one time we were surprised . Also it was supposedly haunted. Enough of my reminiscing. Just two weeks ago I entered through the front door for the first time in my life. I am now 68 years old,and what I discovered is it is now truly haunted with the history of the Civil War. From the short film on the history of J.B. at the entrance of the museum, to the many facts that led up to the Civil War. Their is more civil War memorabilia than I ever imagined. If you are coming to Saint Louis or if you just live here be sure you visit this magnificent museum. If you don't you will be missing what I consider to be a great new attraction to our fair city. Also you will be walking into a building I walked in when I was a kid.
