The staff at the Missouri State Museum in the Capitol is inviting the public to attend an opening ceremony for the Missouri Trailblazers and the Missouri Bicentennial Timeline exhibits.
The event, which is set for 2 p.m. Nov. 20, launches the museum's commemoration of the Missouri Bicentennial with the official opening of these two new exhibits. Museum officials said the exhibits span the state's prehistory and history, exploring ways the state's people and institutions have impacted the culture through major events, leadership, innovation and more.
The opening ceremony will be in the Capitol Rotunda, followed by a ribbon cutting at the entrance of the new exhibit in the museum's History Hall. Museum staff will be available to answer questions and show visitors through the new exhibits.
The public is strongly encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines and be proactive in protecting themselves and others amid ongoing public health concerns. Face coverings are encouraged.
