It seems almost wonderfully ironic to watch “Meet In St. Louis” on the subject of the film itself.

Judy Garland’s classic musical surrounds the Smith family and their life in St. Louis as the city prepares to host the 1904 World’s Fair. And tonight at 6:30 p.m. on December 16, you can watch the legendary MGM movie inside the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park where there is more than a lot to learn, see and touch about what is considered one of the best world exhibits in the world. has never seen.

Fun fact: The history museum site was the main entrance to the fairgrounds, and the giant Thomas Jefferson statue in the lobby is one of the many fairground relics found at the facility.


The festivities begin at 5 p.m. and there will be exhibits, singers, and a gift shop available for attendees.

Free entry.
