Soldiers' Memorial Military Museum, Saint Louis

Soldiers' Memorial Military Museum, Saint Louis

The Soldiers' Memorial in downtown St. Louis is a memorial and military museum operated by the St. Louis Board of Public Service. Interior east and west wings contain cases with military displays and memorabilia from World War I and subsequent American wars.

The building was designed by St. Louis architectural firm Mauran, Russell & Crowell in a stripped Classical style, with a severely simplified form and limited ornament. It was dedicated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 and officially opened to the public on Memorial Day, 1938. Four monumental sculptural groups representing figures of Loyalty, Vision, Courage and Sacrifice complete with their horses, created by sculptor Walker Hancock, stand on the north and south sides of the building. Other architectural sculpture here was completed by Hillis Arnold.

Why You Should Visit:
An amazing military museum housing every imaginable weapon. Most exhibits are presented in outdated glass display cases, but if you overlook that, there's plenty to see.

Opening Hours:
Mon–Fri: 9am–4:30pm; Sat–Sun: 10am–7pm
