“since 1943”

Since open­ing on Feb­ru­ary 6, 1943, the Camp­bell House Museum has served the greater St. Louis area as one of the region’s pre­mier his­toric prop­erty museums.The Museum not only pre­serves the Campbell’s house, but also their col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal fur­ni­ture, fix­tures, paint­ings, objects and thou­sands of pages of fam­ily doc­u­ments. Included in these doc­u­ments is a unique album of 60 photographs of the interior of the house taken in about 1885. In 2005 the Museum completed a metic­u­lous five-year restoration that returned the build­ing to its opulent 1880s appear­ance, when the house was one of the cen­ters of St. Louis society. The museum was doc­u­mented as part of the His­toric Amer­i­can Build­ings Sur­vey between 1936 and 1941, des­ig­nated a City of St. Louis Land­mark in 1946, listed on the National Reg­is­ter of His­toric Places in 1977, and became a National Trust for His­toric Preser­va­tion Save America’s Trea­sures project in 2000. The museum is owned and oper­ated by the Camp­bell House Foun­da­tion, Inc., a 501©(3) non-profit organization.The museum is con­stantly work­ing towards its mission:” The Camp­bell House Museum is one of the most his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant Nine­teenth Cen­tury build­ings in St. Louis. The museum pre­serves its National Reg­is­ter listed build­ings and impor­tant col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal mid-Nineteenth Cen­tury Philadel­phia fur­nish­ings, fam­ily pos­ses­sions, pho­tographs, and archival mate­r­ial as a cen­ter for edu­ca­tional and com­mu­nity out­reach programming.The museum is ded­i­cated to con­tin­u­ally rein­ter­pret­ing its col­lec­tions for explor­ing issues such as; the devel­op­ment of the fur trade, explo­ration and devel­op­ment of the west, the growth of urban economies, emi­gra­tion, his­toric preser­va­tion, prin­ci­ples of Vic­to­rian inte­rior design, and the urban issues that con­tinue to shape our region today. ”

Tour guide Andy was amazing in his knowledge of the house, the family, and the historical times involved. We were the only ones on the tour so could ask any question. The house is beautiful! Free parking. And try the original recipe Roman Punch sorbet. Yummy on a warm day.

Loved this hidden gem. Ring the doorbell and get ushered in to a private tour. You can spend as long or as short as you like in each room. There is so much history in this time capsule.
