New Masonic Museum in Missouri

The Missouri Masonic Library and Museum, on the campus of the Masonic Home of Missouri in Columbia, will open officially on February 25th. It will be housed in the building that is home to the Grand Lodge of Missouri. According to an article in the Missourian:
Exhibits include five themed galleries that focus on different individuals throughout history who have contributed to the Masonic Fraternity and its charity.

The library portion of the museum has not been thoroughly developed yet.

A few recognizable Masons of the area who will be honored are historical figures Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, Omar Bradley, Harry S. Truman and Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was involved the Order of the Eastern Star. She will be the subject of a gallery that shows how education and music are important in Masonry.
