Availablity
The TMH Academy 2017 will run from Saturday, January 14 to Saturday, March 4, 2017. It meets twice a week: on Thursdays from 3:30-5:30pm and on Saturdays from 10:00am-2:00pm. The TMH Academy involves working closely in teams, and it builds on the skills learned each week. The success of the program depends on every member of the program being present and prepared. If there are immovable family obligations—the ACT, a wedding, or a family vacation, for instance—as much advance notice as possible is needed.
Supplementary Material
History and museums are all about stories. What is a story that is important to you? Use your favorite medium--like an essay, a video, a picture, or an audio clip--to create an original piece that shares your own compelling story. Submissions must be the original work of the applicant. Supplementary materials can be sent via fax or mail if necessary. Fax: (314) 454-3189 Address: Attn: Ellen Kuhn, Missouri History Museum, PO Box 11940, St. Louis, MO 63112
