Program: 7 p.m.; Museum open 5 p.m.-9 p.m.
Between 1837 and 1839, 13 detachments of Cherokee traveled overland through Missouri after being forced from their homelands in the southeastern states. These groups took three routes through Missouri, giving us more miles of the Cherokee Trail of Tears than any other state. Take a virtual trip along the Trail of Tears as we look at the places and conditions along the state’s routes.

Also, come early to learn more about the Missouri State Museum and our upcoming plans and goals. This is a great time to let us know your vision of the future for the museum and Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.

The program continues the museum's ongoing series, "Museum After Hours," held the first Wednesday of each month. In addition to the program, the museum's galleries will be open until 9 p.m.

The program will be held in the Missouri State Museum's History Hall, located in the east wing of the Missouri State Capitol.
