On May 6, 1919, the Missouri General Assembly established "Soldiers' and Sailor's Memorial Hall" in the State Capitol. This new museum was to display the flags, relics and records of Missouri's soldiers, sailors and marines. Within four years, the expanding museum became the Missouri State Museum. Join us to learn more about the museum's history and to celebrate its 100th year.
