Field House Museum
The Field House Museum is a historic house highlighting the lives of Eugene Field, the famous "Children's Poet", and his father Roswell Field, who worked on the Dred Scott case. Docent guided tours will take visitors back to 1850 when the Field family moved to the residence. While touring the historic house, your guide will tell you more about the house itself, Roswell Field, the Dred Scott case and Eugene Field's life. Once the guided tour is complete, visitors will then have as much time as they like to explore the new expansion. The expansion space is a rotating exhibit space and also houses the gift shop and Eugene Field Library. The Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum was opened December 18, 1936, as the first historic house museum in St. Louis. In 2007, the home was designated a National Historic Landmark. The Museum is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been named a City of St. Louis landmark.
