Patee House Museum

In the Patee House Museum, you can climb aboard an 1860 train and ride a vintage carousel—indoors. The museum houses an 1877 railroad depot; a stagecoach; automobiles; trucks; fire trucks; wagons; buggies and carriages; a horse-drawn hearse; a real gallows; a blacksmith shop; the dressmaker's shop; model railroads; antique furniture and toys; western art; and a wing designed to look like the streets of Old St. Jo in the 1860s-1880s.

Constructed in 1858 as a luxury hotel, the building has been a hotel three times; a girls college twice; the Union Army Provost Marshal's office during the Civil War; the headquarters for the Pony Express; and a shirt factory.

Admission: $7; age 60+, $6; ages 6-17, $5; younger than 6, free.

(One block away, visit the home where the infamous outlaw Jesse James was shot and killed on April 3, 1882.)
