Field House Museum

The first historic museum in St. Louis and the boyhood home of Eugene Field, The Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum packs a historical punch. Eugene’s father Roswell M. Field was the attorney who defended Dred Scott in that groundbreaking fight for Scott’s freedom. The relics found in the Field home are reminiscent of a time when joys and pains marked the plight of the Midwest. The toy museum consists of dolls and toys from the Field collection as well as toys that date back as far as 1790. All the proceeds go towards the upkeep and conservation of this historic landmark.

Museum of Transportation

The first step towards the idea of the Museum of Transportation was the display of a vintage 1870 mule-drawn streetcar Bellefontaine which was initiated by a group of individuals passionate about preserving the history of American vehicles. Today, after subsequent addition of such heritage artefacts, the museum boasts of having a collection that ranges from antique cars, boats and aeroplanes to a major collection of locomotives and railroad equipment. The standard gauge rail tracks are connected to an active Union Pacific Railroad mainline, thus, facilitating the museum to receive a sizable collection of rare vintage locomotives from across the country. The Earl C. Lindburg Automotive Center inside the museum comprises of a small collection of automobiles, the oldest being the 1908 Galloway Express truck. Call for group reservations and more information.
