Museums & History

With Jefferson City as the state capital since 1825, you’d better believe we’re packed with history! The doors of some of the city’s oldest buildings are open to the public, offering tours throughout the year. Admire the rotunda at the Missouri State Capitol, get a sneak peek inside the Missouri Governor’s Mansion, and book a history or ghost tour at the infamous Missouri State Penitentiary. From east to west, there’s so much history to share!
