STL History Museum (Day 18)

(Day 18 of February's a-photo-a-day challenge.)

Saturday we ventured into the stinging cold to visit the Saint Louis History museum. We caught the "250 in 250" (250 exhibits celebrating 250 years of the city) in its final weekend. It was so fun to get out and be able to have a taste of what this city has experienced over the past two and a half centuries. 

This city has seen A LOT. 

(Interesting fact, the population has declined dramatically in the past 60 years, with over half its residents leaving the city. The many derelict and once-grand crumbling houses are a testament to this.)

Watch out, ladies, Isaac is perfecting his smoulder!

My favorite piece was the gorgeous Veiled Prophet Queen Dress.
The ball itself has some pretty controversial history. 
So fun. And it felt great to cross something off my STL bucket list!
