Missouri's Famous Gateway Arch

Missouri’s Must See Sites

The entire Show Me State is chock full of historic wonders. From the days of the Missouri Territory and beyond, here are eight sights you can’t miss in MO:

1. Missouri State Capitol

Probably an obvious one, but what’s visiting the capital city without visiting the capitol? Found in downtown Jefferson City on the Missouri River, the 1917 capitol building features tours and an impressive statue of declaration-dude Thomas Jefferson.

2. Missouri Governor's Mansion

Constructed in 1871, the Missouri Governor's Mansion is also located in eastern Missouri's Jefferson City. Found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, this Neo-Renaissance structure features tours on the reg.

3. Missouri State Penitentiary

Cleverly nicknamed The Walls, J-City’s Missouri State Penitentiary was the resident pen from 1836 to 2004. Shawshank fans enjoy historic and paranormal tours, plus the nearby Missouri State Penitentiary Museum.

4. Cole County Historical Society Museum

Last one for Jefferson City. The Cole County Historical Society Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, featuring tours and a multitude of fascinating exhibits on early Missourly.

5. Liberty Memorial

A National Historic Landmark, and listed on the NROHP, Liberty Memorial is found in western Missouri in Kansas City. Home to the National World War I Museum, the memorial was constructed in 1926 at Penn Valley Park – and gives the History Channel a run for their money.

6. Historic Quadrangle

Grab your Frisbee and hit the Quad at Missouri State University. Better known as MSU’s Historic Quadrangle, this quaint area features structures from 1908 along Springfield's National Avenue.

7. Forest Park Jewel Box

One of the coolest greenhouses there is, the Forest Park Jewel Box was built in 1936 in St. Louis. Also found on the NROHP, this public horticultural facility is best known for its 4,000 panes of plate glass – making for 16,664 square feet of glass and lots of Windex.

8. Gateway Arch

You were waiting for this one. Part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, the iconic Gateway Arch reaches 630 feet – making it Earth's tallest arch, and Missouri’s tallest building. Standing against the Mississippi River, this massive steel arch put St. Louis on the map.
