ST. LOUIS – It is an important project which has been in the works for a while.

The grand opening is here for the newly expanded and renovated St. Louis Kaplan-Feldman Holocaust Museum, Wednesday, November 2.

The museum is just off Lindbergh Boulevard and Schuetz Road near Creve Coeur. It’s been a multi-million dollar project which has taken two years to complete. The renovation has quadrupled the size of the previous museum.

Inside the museum are artifacts, pictures, and videos that help chronicle the tragic history of the Holocaust. The displays are emotional and in some cases heartbreaking, but museum organizers shared that they are important for people to realize what truly transpired during the Holocaust.

There will be a ribbon cutting Wednesday morning, which will be only for invited guests. Then the museum will open to the public this afternoon.

Going forward, it will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children. Kids under 10 years old are free and there are various discounts that can be used to get in as well.
