Schedules & Calendars
Visit the new National Blues Museum. This museum is dedicated to exploring the musical history and impact of the blues music genre. Whether it’s jazz or folk, country or pop, rock or rap, the Blues has exerted a deep, profound influence that resonates to this day. Part of the reason is that it has always expressed emotional, heartfelt truths about life that continue to speak to generations of listeners, from all corners and walks of society. Enjoy lunch at one of St. Louis’ finest restaurants, Kemoll’s, high atop Missouri’s largest skyscraper, the Metropolitan Square Building. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the Mississippi River and St. Louis city as you dine on your choice of manicotti, chicken parmesan, or fresh catch. All meals served with dinner salad, side of pasta, cheese garlic bread, non-alcoholic beverage and dessert. After lunch we will rediscover the Gateway Arch! The construction at the Arch grounds is completed and you’ll see the changes first. Explore the new museum, which traces the story of the Native American, explorers, and pioneers who made America possible. Featuring six themed exhibit areas, this innovative and interactive museum celebrates American’s pioneering spirit. You’ll also enjoy a tram ride to the top or for those who prefer, they can view the movie “Monument to a Dream,” which chronicles the construction of the Arch. Tour fees, lunch, gratuities and charter bus transportation are included.
You must pre-register by September 17th.
