Kids can try their hand at folding a road map and use a touch-screen jukebox to choose from 16 versions of the song “Get Your Kicks on Route 66.” They’ll also be able to use an old pay phone, hearing dial tones and busy signals. Be sure to check out the old bumper car and Route 66-themed toys and board games. Families will love the classic cars including a 1963 Corvette Stingray Convertible and a 1957 Airstream Travel Trailer.
History happens at Missouri History Museum. Learn about special exhibits, events and other activities at the museum.
To people of all ages and backgrounds, the Missouri History Museum is a leading cultural institution and community resource that offers exhibitions, programming and collections to explore the history of the region in order to better understand the world we live in and build a stronger community for the future.
The Jefferson Memorial Building section of the Missouri History Museum was originally built as the first national monument to Thomas Jefferson, preceding the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. by more than 25 years. The museum now features special exhibits and St. Louis history galleries with interactive stations for children throughout.
