History Clubhouse Grand Opening Celebration
brochure: hclubhouse opening

Join us for the Grand Opening of the History Clubhouse and be the first to check out our new space just for families!  Kids will step back in time, explore, discover, and play in some favorite St. Louis places that families love.  Walk among the buildings of Downtown St. Louis, take a trolley to the past, steer a steamboat on the Mississippi River, prepare food in the ancient city of Cahokia, sell ice cream at the 1904 World’s Fair, and learn history along the way!

Saturday, June 27 & Sunday, June 28
10am-3:30pm each day

At 10:00am on Saturday, June 27, kids are invited to meet the History Clubhouse mascot Glory the Gargoyle and be the first to explore the new space.  Bring back your collectible hard hats from last summer and receive a new Glory the Gargoyle sticker to commemorate the Grand Opening!  Arrive by 9:45 to receive a new hard hat for the ribbon cutting photo-op; supplies are limited and available on a first-come first-serve basis.  Drop in any time throughout the Grand Opening Weekend to play in the History Clubhouse and enjoy live music, puppet shows, face painting, art workshops, and more!
