The Missouri History Museum is in Forest Park in St. Louis. The main galleries are free through a public subsidy by the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District. The museum's signature collection includes national artifacts, as well as Missouri and St. Louis related materials, such as local colonial and native artifacts, Louisiana Purchase Exposition artifacts, and items relating to Charles Lindbergh and his trans-Atlantic flight in the Spirit of St. Louis. A replica of the Spirit of St. Louis can be found in the museum. A large number of artifacts from the Lewis and Clark Expedition are also housed in the permanent collection, as St. Louis was the starting point for that venture. The museum is operated by the Missouri Historical Society.
