I think this museum is a bit of a "forgotten treasure" in St Louis. The exhibits are always interesting and varied, with something for everyone. I recently took my 18 month old granddaughter and she enjoyed the experience, as have my young nieces and nephews. I have found that a membership is a wonderful way to both support the museum and see all the exhibits, as well as stay informed on everything that is being offered. I would urge everyone to visit this museum.

Occasional good traveling exhibits; semi-permanent exhibits are not well done, not particularly interesting; not of current interest; Missouri in the Civil War exhibit had a number of misspellings on the plaques and some incorrect information; Recent disclosure of huge funds wasted on the key administer coupled with local spending scandals

I visited the History Museum with my husband and our 2-year-old daughter. My husband and I loved the set-up and the availability of random facts (not just the same information that you will find in a high school social studies book!) I was very surprised at all the "hand-on" exhibits and it was more than enough to keep my toddler's attention. We didn't pay for any of the separate exhibits, but we felt there was more than enough to look at for free.

I love history... the more ancient the better, and this museum has enough exhibits to keep me interested for hours.

Loved this exhibit, it showed the role St. Louis played in the Civil War. On Tuesdays, St. Louis City and County residents can get free admission to the museum exhibits between 2 and 8 pm (I believe, unsure of exact times).
