St. Louis, Missouri, is a town full of history, beauty, and culture. This year, the Gateway City turns 250 years old, a true milestone for the entire state.
To celebrate this birthday, why not brush up on your St. Louis history at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park?
The museum is hosting its “250 in 250” exhibit, which highlights the city’s history through the stories of 50 people, 50 places, 50 moments, 50 images, and 50 objects. For an engaging look at the richness, diversity, and complexity of St. Louis, this exhibit cannot be missed.
The exhibit opens on Feb. 14, and lasts for one year, closing on Feb. 15, 2015.
The Missouri History Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday. On Friday through Monday, museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you’re on a budget, the exhibit—and entire museum—is perfect for an afternoon that doesn’t hurt the wallet. As always, admission is free! Some fees do apply for a handful of exhibits, however.
As a proud St. Louis business, Finney Law Office, LLC is excited to celebrate the semiquincentennial along with the entire city. It is hard to fathom that in 1764, 12 years before the United States declared independence, the seeds to the mighty St. Louis we know and love today were planted.
We encourage everyone to stop by the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park sometime in 2014 to check out “250 in 250.” After your visit, be sure to tweet at @StLouisPILaw to tell us what you thought of the exhibit!
