Missouri in the Great War: Fall Event

Saturday, November 11, 2017, 08:00am - 05:00pm

About The Event

This year our bi-annual fall event focuses on “Missouri and the Great War". It will give visitors a taste of what Missourians experienced during the Great War. Experience life abroad and life at home during the war in the museum’s exhibit halls.

“Missourian Experience Abroad”
Guided tours: (45 minutes) 10 a.m. - Noon and 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. 

On a tour, experience the journey of a soldier. Here you will be drafted into the Army, trained, shipped to France, learn about the front, write letters home, and then be discharged upon the war’s end.

“Missourian Experience at Home” 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The museum's History Hall will feature ongoing activity stations. Experience how civilians at home became involved in the war effort. Learn how children and their parents helped support soldiers abroad and how those at home coped during the war. 

This event is free and open to the public.
(573) 751-2854

Visitor access is located on the south side of the building via the carriage entrance under the grand staircase. All visitors over the age of 13 are subject to security screening.
