In celebration of the centennial of the 1904 World's Fair, the Missouri Historical Society presents a museum exhibit that embodies the sights, sounds and splendor of the Fair. Far more than a nostalgic journey, the exhibit is an exploration of the aspirations and visions of the future held by the men, women and children of 1904.
The mission of the World's Fair Historical Society is to preserve the history of world's fairs and educate the public about how important this history is and how it has impacted society. Also known as international expositions or expos, many innovations and inventions have come from these events and many ideas on how to better society have come out them. This is history that a lot of people are not aware of and needs to be promoted so others can learn about it.
