Tour of MHS Library and Research Center Tomorrow

This month the Rehabbers Club of ReVitalize St.Louis will visit the Missouri History Museum Library and Research Center for a guided tour! Research is a big part of any historically accurate rehab and the Library staff have agreed to give our group a window onto the many fantastic research resources available at its facility on Skinker, which is itself a one of St. Louis’ architectural treasures.

WHEN: Tour starts at 9:00am this Saturday October 16th.

WHERE: The Missouri History Museum Library and Research Center is located at 225 S. Skinker Blvd., across from the golf course in Forest Park. More info at:

The number does not actually appear on the building. It is a yellow brick building with a double staircase in front and a domed roof. There are banners for the library on the light poles nearby.

PARKING: The Library and Research Center is two buildings – an old and a new. The library is in the old (north) building, and the parking lot is just to the south of the new storage building. There is also free parking on both sides of Skinker.

Our tour starts before regular museum hours, so after you park, come to the staff entrance, which is up the driveway between the old and new buildings. It’s the door on the right, under the blue awning. Just inside the door, there is a Security office. We will meet there at 9:00am.
