This tour requires pre-registration.

Since its founding in 1866, the Missouri Historical Society (MHS) has been collecting archival materials, books, artifacts, art and photographs documenting the history of the region and state. In the 1990s MHS added architectural archives, sound and moving images to its collecting areas, and launched an active digitization program.

The MHS Library and Research Center is an adaptive reuse of a historic 1920s era Byzantine-style synagogue designed by St. Louis architecture firm Maritz & Young and consulting architect Gabriel Ferrand. The former sanctuary with its ornate plaster work ceiling is now the library’s Reading Room. The tour will highlight visual resources and architectural archives, and include processing, storage and digitization areas.

Maximum participants: 25

Fee: $45

Accessibility: Walking, standing.

Transportation: Coach bus from conference hotel. Meet the tour volunteer by the front desk 15 minutes prior to start.
