Celebrate Missouri's history and culture at museums and live-show venues.
Author: Stephen Foutes

From history to art to music, there are a variety of ways to connect with Missouri's unique culture. One of the best ways, of course, is to include history, the arts AND live music on your itinerary.

Thanks to Missouri's incredible and varied lineup of museums and performance venues, making that connection is quite easy.

For example, in St. Louis, you can see works by prominent Missouri artist George Caleb Bingham at the Saint Louis Art Museum by day and jam to rock-n-roll classics with Chuck Berry at his performance home, Blueberry Hill, by night.

In Kansas City, it's fun to pair your visit to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art with a night of live music and dancing in the popular Power and Light District.

After exploring the ultra-historic (and slightly spooky) Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City, take the drive north to Columbia for a live show at the Blue Note, one of Missouri's most well-known performance venues.

When you've learned more about the birthplace of Route 66 at the Museum on the Square in Springfield, head south to Branson, where more than 40 performance theaters and dozens of performers, including The Texas Tenors, provide awesome entertainment.

In Ste. Genevieve, experience a different kind of showmanship as you enjoy the art of wine-making at stops such as Crown Valley Winery and Cave Vineyard, then take the hour drive south to Cape Girardeau, where the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum in Cape Girardeau offers a fascinating look at American Indian history in the Show-Me State.

As you can see, connecting with the Show-Me State's culture is quite easy - and fun to do in pairs. Learn more and start planning your getaway on our home page at VisitMO.com.
