Check Out a Free Pass to the History Museum on the Square

Families and individuals can now use their Springfield-Greene County Library card to check out a free pass to the History Museum on the Square in downtown Springfield.

Each pass allows up to six people to explore all the hands-on exhibits about Springfield’s early days and infamous characters. Become part of the story as you “ride’ on the passenger train, encounter a Wild Bill Hickok shootout, and immerse yourself in the Birthplace of Route 66.

Passes are available at any library branch or the Mobile Library.  Passes are valid for seven days.

Library cardholders can also check out free passes to longtime partner, the Discovery Center of Springfield.

Passes to both museums are available at branch service desks.

For more information and guidelines, about the passes, visit  

The History Museum on the Square is at 154 Park Central Square. Discovery Center of Springfield is at 438 E. St. Louis St.
