The roots of the Saint Louis Science Center go back. Way back. The Academy of Science of Saint Louis was founded in 1856, as the first scientific organization west of the Mississippi River. The Academy founded the Museum of Science and Natural History in 1959 and moved to Clayton’s Oak Knoll Park. When the Metropolitan Zoological Park & Museum District (ZMD) was formed in 1971, the Museum of Science and Natural History became a member of the ZMD, independent from the Academy, which continues to operate as a separate entity to this day.
The Museum then outgrew the facilities at Oak Knoll Park in the mid-1980s. In 1984, the museum acquired the James S. McDonnell Planetarium from the City of St. Louis. After a $3.2 million renovation, the building reopened July 20, 1985, as the Saint Louis Science Center.
Following a $34 million expansion to construct the current main building off of Oakland Avenue, the Science Center opened November 2, 1991, in its larger footprint. On February 8, 1997, the Science Center added the EXPLORADOME, an air-supported building just west of the Oakland Avenue building, in order to provide additional space for large traveling exhibitions, to better accommodate school groups and to have space available for facility rentals and community activities.
In July 2010, the Science Center broke ground on the addition of a new exhibition hall. With 13,000 square feet of additional space, the new Boeing Hall features a rooftop terrace and provides 12,000 square feet of permanent public exhibit space –- a long term replacement for the air-supported EXPLORADOME. Boeing Hall opened to the public on October 28th, 2011, with the Star Trek Exhibition as its inaugural traveling exhibition.
Throughout 2013, the Science Center is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the James S. McDonnell Planetarium. Since the James S. McDonnell Planetarium’s doors opened on April 16, 1963, more than 18 million people have experienced a connection with astronomy, space exploration and aviation through a visit to this iconic structure.

When the Woman’s Exchange was founded in 1883, there were few options for women desperate to support themselves and their families. For these women, selling handmade goods at the Exchange was a welcome alternative to the horrible working conditions in factories and other less desirable fields. Working as a consignor for the Exchange was an opportunity to work from home while caring for one’s family.
Society has changed greatly since 1883, and women are now welcomed in every employment field. Still, there remains an intense desire and need for many men and women to earn income from home. The Exchange continues to provide this opportunity by housing, displaying, and selling their beautiful handiwork, paying back at least 70% of the selling price to the consignor.
The Woman’s Exchange of St. Louis provides a venue for the sale of heirloom-quality clothing and beautiful decorative items handmade by our consignors, the industrious, deserving men and women that benefit from our mission of helping others help themselves.
As our consignors struggle with difficult family situations, such as a special needs child, a handicapped spouse, severely limited income, or an unexpected financial burden, the proceeds from their skilled handiwork bring financial independence, peace of mind and self esteem.
