The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum was created to help remind us all that those who have made the supreme sacrifice have enabled America to live and it is our duty to not let their sacrifice go in vain and make America better. The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum is a moving tribute to the fallen with its architectural features, stone columns, and statues. Karen and I, being new parents, were really touched by the mosaic of a star with a red background as a salute to the mothers of the soldiers that lost their lives.The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum is a stop you should make if you are in the Saint Louis area in the downtown part of the city not far from the Arch. You do not have to be a fan of the military to be grateful for those who have kept us free.Whenever Karen and I travel we try to stop by military museums/memorials for two reasons one we are extremely interested in the history of it, but more importantly those brave men and women should be appreciated and not forgotten. The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum was well worth the stop even though most people would think the museum is out-of-date and has no frills. Even though there are no interactive displays or computers there is still a lot of information to be learned here. The museum’s artifacts are behind glass display cases and are divided up by the different wars and conflicts throughout American history. Every object in the Soldiers Memorial has been donated which is a policy they started when they first opened their doors in 1938.The Soldiers Memorial Military Museum is a free attraction in Saint Louis. It is self-paced so you can have as quick of a visit as you want. The objects in the museum are interesting especially if you like to look at old military firearms and uniforms. Our visit took less than an hour and we just stopped by one morning as we walked from our hotel to the Arch.
