From June 2 through Aug. 22, the Missouri State Museum is once again hosting a fun twist on summer programming. “Tuesdays @ 2" is a series of interactive programs exploring various aspects of Missouri's cultural and natural history specifically focused on age groups 8-12 years using more activity-based programming. For similar-themed programming for younger children, please see our regular "Learning @ 11" programs for age groups 4-7. The programs will be held on the first floor of the State Capitol.

  • June 2: Archeologists: Digging Deep into Our Past. Take an in-depth look at archaeologists and see how and why they do their work. Weather permitting, this program will take place outside so come prepared to be outside for an hour.
  • June 9: How about an 1850s Pizza? Almost everyone loves pizza but did they even have pizza in the 1850s? Learn about the ingredients in today’s pizza, and if they were available in the 1850s.
  • June 16: Follow the Flags. We are going to explore flags, especially the ones in the museum. Start thinking about a design you would want on a flag to represent you. We see flag making in your future!
  • June 23: 300 Miles of Tunnels! Most people do not even know about the mining industry in Missouri. Industrial mining in Missouri started in 1700s when lead was discovered in the southeastern part of the state. We are going to “dig deep” to explore miles of tunnels, and maybe find some treasure of our own.
  • June 30: The “Duelist,” the “Thief,” and the “Babysitter”: Exploring three Governors of Missouri. Life can be hard even for governors. See how these three changed Missouri and had a great story to tell.
