The Missouri Civil War Museum is a great place to bring students and groups to learn more about Missouri’s role in the American Civil War. Currently, educational programs take place in the museum and must be scheduled in advance. Currently under renovation at this time, the historic 1918 Jefferson Barracks Post Exchange Building located next to the museum building is scheduled to be completed in 2015 as a new Civil War library and educational center for students. The 6,000 square foot facility will be equipped with a library, lecture room, video presentation rooms and a dining facility. The building is being designed specifically to conduct educational programs and events.
