Loop Trolley

—Missouri History Museum —

Since the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Forest Park has been a St. Louis treasure and top tourist destination. Known as the crown jewel of the Midwest, 13 million people visit the the 1,300-acre park each year. The park includes 170 acres of nature reserves, 30 miles of trails, the Saint Louis Zoo, Saint Louis Art Museum, Saint Louis Science Center and the Muny.

In 1904, World's Fair visitors could pay 10 cents to ride a seven-mile electric streetcar system around the fairgrounds. In a grand return to days of old, the Loop Trolley carries passengers right into the park, mere steps from the Missouri History Museum's Jefferson Memorial Building. The museum opened in 1913 using proceeds from the Fair and is now home to a collection of St. Louis' resonant past and present.
