Visit Missouri Civil War Museum for a chance to learn about Missouri's role in the American Civil War, a story told through artifacts from the era. The museum is housed in the Jefferson Barracks Military Post, which was established in 1862 as an Infantry School of Practice. It takes up the gymnasium building, which was built in 1905 for commissioned officers. You'll find displays of military weapons, uniforms, and medical supplies from both sides of the conflict here, which help provide insight into this state's position during the war. The main room houses the bulk of the exhibits. Don't miss the parlor chair originating from the Lincoln White House. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Saint Louis trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
