Created with input from St. Louis families, the History Clubhouse at the Missouri History Museum is a space for families to foster a love of history, learning, and museums. You and your kids can step back in time, explore, discover and play in some favorite St. Louis places in a welcoming environment where nothing is hands-off.
You'll walk among the buildings of downtown St. Louis, steer a steamboat on the Mississippi River, prepare food in the ancient city of Cahokia, sell ice cream at the 1904 World's Fair, and learn history along the way.
You'll also enjoy music, face painting, crafts and more. Activities vary each week.
Family Nights in the History Clubhouse are held from 4 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays through Aug. 18, then from 4 to 6:45 p.m. on Tuesdays from Aug. 25 through Sept. 29.
At the Missouri History Museum. Free.
