The third Friday of each month, the Missouri State Museum will take visitors on a themed tour of the Missouri State Capitol at 3 pm. These tours will be different from the standard tours given daily at the museum. Themed tours will explore a wide array of topics from in-depth looks at specific artworks, or viewing the capitol as a product of the resources of Missouri. The theme for May is "Foundations."
The architecture of the Missouri State Capitol and its associated artworks and fountains contain symbols and images that represent the foundations of the world, our democracy and our state. Join this exterior walking tour of the Capitol grounds to learn more about the capitol and its history.
The tour will include a lot of walking and climbing stairs. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water. In case of rain, the tour will be rescheduled to Friday, June 2 at 3 pm.
