What You'll Get


For $40, today’s Groupon gets you a family-plus membership (an $85 value) to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. Current members can use today’s Groupon to extend their existing memberships; see today’s side deal for an individual membership option.

The family-plus membership package includes the following benefits:

  • Free or reduced admission to all exhibitions for four adults and unlimited tickets for household members younger than 18
  • Members-only previews of select exhibitions
  • Entrance to members-only events
  • Advance notice of events and programs
  • Complimentary thank-you gift
  • Subscription to the museum’s bimonthly magazine and Gateway
  • Local discounts on travel and gift-shop items
  • 20% off one item in the museum’s gift shop

The Missouri History Museum houses both continuing and special exhibitions year-round. The museum also hosts film screenings, music, concerts, lectures, theater performances, talks, and workshops. Members have access to exclusive events such as exhibit previews, tours, and the upcoming Annual Member Appreciation Day on April 17. Revisit the city’s legacy as depicted through interactive exhibitions and cutting-edge displays in the museum’s Currents and Reflections galleries. This spring, the MHM partners with the Missouri Botanical Garden to present a timeline of the garden’s rich, 150-year background complete with photographs, artifacts, and an audio tour. Along with the museum’s Twilight Tuesday concert series and the exclusive members-only Big House tour of the historic Missouri State Penitentiary (an additional $90/person), you can also feast your eyes on a replica of the Spirit of St. Louis. And if you’re a member for long enough, the museum will let you fly it to Paris on weekends.

Museum visits are like buffet restaurants, Cabbage Patch dolls, and birthmarks—no two are exactly the same. Constantly rotating exhibits, new events, and guest lectures help create a completely different and enlightening experience every time. Get this Groupon to have an automatic get-out-of-boredom-free card, a thoughtful activity for out-of-town guests, or a surefire cure for writer’s block.

About Missouri History Museum


Where can you learn the stories of Civil War soldiers, discover little-known facts about famous figures such as Chuck Berry, and see St. Louis Cardinals artifacts from the 1960's Busch Stadium all in one place? The Missouri History Museum boasts an expansive collection of photographs, artifacts, and maps that reveal some of the nation's and state's most intimate stories. Originally built as the first national monument to Thomas Jefferson, the site now offers exhibits that include items such as the sister plane to Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis and images of the buildings and grand palaces that were erected for the 1904 World's Fair.

In addition to rotating exhibits, events such as lectures, genealogical workshops, theatrical performances, and movie screenings offer guests a bridge to the past and a new perspective on the future. The museum is also planning a 2014 exhibit to commemorate St. Louis's 250th anniversary, which will unfold via 50 people, 50 places, 50 moments, 50 images, and 50 objects representing the city's richness and diversity.
