The County Heritage Museum at Heritage Park offers FREE interpretive displays focusing on local and state history and is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wed. through Sat., and noon to 5 p.m., on Sun. Rich in St. Charles County history, the nearly 6,000-square foot facility, located on a site known to many as Kuhlmann's Grove, was a popular recreation area for county residents for nearly a hundred years. The Museum is designed to house large exhibit displays, which will be changed out yearly. The current transportation display, On the Move…A History of Transportation in St. Charles County, features rivers, rails and roads. The new exhibit showcases several interactive components, including touchscreen maps, a model bridge building area, and a steamboat pilot house that simulates the experience of navigating a vessel up the Missouri River. Other areas of the Museum feature displays about the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroads and the bridges of past and present in St. Charles County.
The Heritage Museum is available for field trips year round. To schedule a visit, classroom presentation or to reserve the meeting room, call the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department's main office at 636.949.7535.
