The Missouri History Museum was founded in 1866 and is located in the Jefferson Memorial Building, which was built in 1913. The museum’s collection includes national artifacts, as well as Missouri and St. Louis related history.

The Museum offers both continuing permanent exhibits as well as short-term special exhibits. These exhibits reflect a commitment to explore the histories of those who call the St. Louis and Missouri home.

The museum is situated in Forest Park, a public park in western St. Louis, Missouri. The park has hosted several significant events, including the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904 and the 1904 Summer Olympics.

Forest Park features a variety of attractions, including the St. Louis Zoo, the St. Louis Art Museum, the Missouri History Museum, and the St. Louis Science Center.
