Connect With...Spotlight Of The Week: Missouri History Museum

Every day, volunteers at the Missouri History Museum (MHM) help make the history of our community more accessible. Putting their talents to work at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park and the Library and Research Center, volunteers are essential to the work which began in 1866. Young professionals with special skills, flexible schedules or an interest in history are encouraged to join their volunteer program. The Missouri History Museum is committed to the success of each volunteer and offers an extensive training program designed to provide historical background information, specific skills and knowledge.

There is another Swap-O-Rama-Rama April 10. Attendees get to dig through other people's clothes, then they can take them as they are or go to a sewing station to alter or completely redesign them.

In January 2010, the Missouri History Museum welcomes the special exhibition RACE: Are We So Different? the exhibition explores the science of human variation, the history of the idea of race and the contemporary experience of race and racism in the United States. In preparation for the exhibition, the Missouri History Museum will present a monthly series of programs addressing issues related to race in the region and nation-wide. Conversations In Black And White will be held July 22 at 5:30pm.
