Museum After Hours
In June, the Missouri State Museum will continue to have "Museum after Hours" events on the first Wednesday of each month and stay open until 9 p.m. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to visit the museum at night, or your schedule doesn't allow daytime outings, come join us for special programs and view the exhibits. You will find both old and new favorites, including "Civil War Missouri: A House Dividing," an exhibit that commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Evening entry to the museum will be through the carriage entrance on the south side of the building underneath the grand staircase.

Every Thursday in June will feature live music in downtown Jefferson City. Plan to be downtown every week for some great Missouri music. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the evening. Downtown stores, restaurants and bars will offer "Thursday Night Live" specials.
