Take an interactive history lesson
Take an exciting and educational trip through the past at the Missouri History Museum, where guests can view a variety of exhibits and join a See STL walking tour with excursions to various historical points of interest in the city. History lovers can also step inside the home of ragtime legend Scott Joplin, explore a world heritage site and ancient civilization at Cahokia Mounds and tour the final resting place of many of St. Louis’ most prominent citizens at Bellefontaine Cemetery. Step inside the century-old Central Library, a magnificent building designed by world-famous architect Cass Gilbert in 1912 and fully restored for its 100th anniversary. The building’s classic beauty, now complemented with 21st century technology, means visitors can find Civil War battle maps, learn a new language or create their own high-quality recording.
