Why You Should Go...

Soldiers Memorial Military Museum shares American military history from the pre-Revolutionary War era to today through the lens of St. Louis. This state-of-the-art museum is housed in a beautiful art-deco building. Ou

The special exhibit currently on view is Vietnam: At War and Home, which examines the era between 1955 and 1975 through two distinct viewpoints: the war front and the home front. These parallel storylines allow visitors to experience the physical and emotional distance between Southeast Asia and St. Louis, examine the war’s impacts, and evaluate the conflict’s legacies.

Soldiers Memorial officially opened on Memorial Day in 1938. It features four monumental groups of sculptures by artisan Walker Hancock that represent courage, loyalty, sacrifice, and vision. Hancock, a native St. Louisan, served in the US Army in World War II but is perhaps best known for being one of the Monuments Men, tasked with protecting and recovering cultural and historical artifacts from wartime damage.
