Balloons and Dirigibles in WWI | National WWI Museum and Memorial

Mayor ends St. Joseph mask mandate

Please note we WILL CONTINUE REQUIRING MASKS. We wish to give staff time to get vaccinated and then will base future decisions dependant on community case numbers as the weeks progress. Thank you all for your efforts to keep our staff and community safe and healthy.

Giving Tuesday is an event celebrated around the globe. It strives to bring people together to show up, give, support, and change their own communities. Giving Tuesday is one day a year, but its impact lasts much longer. 2020 has been a year of struggles and resilience for almost every person on the planet. It has also been a time of coming together to show support, especially at the local level.
Like so many others, the St. Joseph Museums has been tremendously impacted by the pandemic. Please consider supporting our Donate December Campaign, which we are kicking off on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Each week we will focus on a different area that needs your support. We will also give a weekly update towards our Donate December goal. Together we can help the museum survive, grow, and thrive - not only this year, but long into the future. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in December to counteract some of the deficit we have from closing, decreased foot traffic, and lost events and tour groups this year.
The Museum was founded in 1927. In 93 years, the Museum has seen many changes in the world, but St. Joseph’s resilient and curious spirit remains constant. We hope to come out of 2020 stronger; to help shape, develop, and move the community into the future while respecting our rich history. 2027 will be our 100th birthday. Your contributions this year can help us achieve that wonderful, historic accomplishment. Visit www.stjosephmuseum.org/donate, stop in daily from 10am - 4pm, or call 816-232-8471 to give. Be sure to download our "un-selfie" image and share why you decided to give. Stay tuned for throwback photos, historic facts, questions, and answers as we learn together about what is in store for 2021. In a year when 1/3 of American museums are in danger of closing, we ask "What would St. Joseph look like without its museums?"

We would like to extend a thank you to all our men and women in the military today! We'd also like to share this Veteran's Day, the story of Lawrence Banks "Mr. B." Mr. B. shares his story in the video and book "In Their Own Words" which you can view on exhibit as part of the Black Archives Museum. Included in this post are some photos of Mr. Banks in 2013 and in his service years, and a newspaper article also from 2013 of his recollections of his years driving on roads in what was then known as Burma. Also talked about was his segregation experiences in Oklahoma where he was born and in St. Joseph where he mad his home. #VeteransDay
