Concordia Historical Institute's two museums - one at the LCMS International Center headquarters in Kirkwood, Missouri, and the other at the exhibit hall of CHI on the campus of Concordia Seminary in Clayton, Missouri, are both open. Masks are currently required to enter the building at the International Center.

What our visitors saying about their experience
My kids want to visit every museum now ! Tour guide Mehar was funny, engaging, and full of fun quirky facts about the Vestige.
Cannot say enough about the Vestige Museum experience: fun, informative, never dull, fast paced and just give an amazing perspective on the Met
Loved the small tour size (5 people) ! This was one of the main reasons I chose a Museum Pleu Tour.
