Archives :: Outreach :: Education


As the education of Missourians is one of the primary goals of the Missouri State Archives, we endeavor to bring materials related to the teaching of Missouri History to educators and students of all ages. Using initiatives and curricula based on Archives collections, and available on-line, educators and students can experience the history contained in original records, and develop a greater appreciation for the rich heritage of Missouri.
