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.

Visits to the CHI building to conduct historical research do not require an appointment, but it is strongly encouraged to make an appointment.
