Museum After Hours: “Born in a Barn”
Location: Missouri State Museum Classroom, History Hall, 201 W. Capitol
Description: On Wed., Feb. 5, the Missouri State Museum will present the program, “‘Born in a Barn,” as part of its ongoing “Museum after Hours” series. Missouri has a legacy of agriculture, and like almost everything else farming has changed a lot in the last 100 years. Horse power has been replaced by mechanical power, hand tools by modern machinery, and hemp and tobacco by corn and beans. Even some of the cattle and pigs of yesterday look strange to us today. Imagine pigs covered with black polka dots, or with ears so large you can’t see their eyes! Come and join us to find out more about yesterday’s farms. We will look at some photographs from the museum collection showing “ideal” farm animals from the 1900s, and also check out some tools and household goods. Sponsored by Missouri State Parks, the program will be held at 7 p.m. in the museum classroom, which is located in the History Hall in the east wing of the State Capitol.
