Thursday Nights at the Museum | Cards’ Home Opener Watch Party and a Celebration of St. Louis Baseball History
Kick off your weekend at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park! Each Thursday Night at the Museum will be the most fun, engaging, uplifting, thought-provoking, perspective-shaping night of your week. And there are drinks. On this special event to kick off the baseball season, join us starting at 2:00pm to purchase snacks and drinks and learn some baseball history before first pitch at 3:10pm. Food and drinks will be available for purchase until 7:00pm, and the Museum’s exhibits are open until 8:00pm for you to explore!
Celebrate opening day! First pitch is at 3:10pm but come to the Missouri History Museum at 2:30pm for ballpark-style snacks and to get the best seats for the watch party. A 30-minute interactive presentation about St. Louis’s rich baseball history with author Ed Wheatley and MHS Public Historian Adam Kloppe will also take place at 2:30pm. Kids can make fan fingers and get their faces painted. The St. Louis Browns mascot will make an appearance, so don’t miss your chance to pose for a photo. Kloppe and Wheatley will toss out clips of local baseball history during commercial breaks, and they’ll provide a 15-minute wrap-up when the game is over. The Museum’s exhibits and shop will stay open until 8pm.
The first 300 guests will receive Cardinals swag, including jerseys and miniature baseball Build-A-Bears®, courtesy of Redbird Rookies! Plus, kids can enter a drawing to win a full-size Build-A-Bear®!
