What is there to do?

Did you know that Field House Museum is not only a very cool and historic place to visit on your day out in St. Louis, but it's also listed a National Historic Landmark? Your day learning about history is IN history!

Once the boyhood home of Eugene Field, and today you can explore this now charitable organization and learn all about the life, works, and times of "The Children's Poet". He also created a personal column in daily newspapers back in his day!

The museum features fascinating family memorabilia as well as other period artifacts, all in a 19th century domestic setting, so not only can you learn about Mr. Field himself, you can FEEL what it's like to life in another century!

Kids, is it just how you live today with computers and phones? We think not!

There are exhibits within the Field House Museum rotate, which means you can be seeing something new with every visit! But don't worry, they are there long enough that you don't have to drop everything to be there! 

The topics of the exhibits vary too, so one month you could be looking at the history of the American quilt, and the next you could be exploring 100 years of the teddy bear!

A fascinating part of not only childhood history, but St. Louis, and the literary world. Field House Museum is great for those kids who love history, want to be inspired, or simply love the magic of books!

Be inspired, kids!
