Missouri History Museum Trying To Restore Public Confidence
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– The Missouri History Museum’s trying to restore public confidence by keeping tighter control of its money.
On Tuesday, the museum board approved changes to how it helps run the museum including requiring the board’s okay of any real estate purchases.
The museum’s been hit by controversy recently because it purchased property on Delmar Boulevard from former Mayor Freeman Bosley, Jr. at what some say is an inflated price.
The museum’s also been criticized because of the salary and perks paid to Director Robert Archibald amounting to well over half a million dollars a year.
