Jefferson Barracks Museums

Ordinance Bld
Powder Magazine Museum
Overlooking the Mississippi River, built in 1857, this is the second powder magazine erected in Jefferson Barracks. This structure was used for storage of the rifles, cannon, gun powder and prepared ammunition for the troops stationed at the Barracks, in the Mississippi valley and in the western frontier.
Built in 1851 to house four horses and two spring wagons used to haul the munitions produced at the St. Louis Arsenal to the various ordnance magazines in Jefferson Barracks. It is unique in that it has a front and back door so that both teams could pull in simultaneously.
Ordinance Bld  

Laborer’s House
Built in 1851 for the use of civilian workmen at the Ordnance Depot, the building was restored from original plans in the National Archives. Extensive archaeological excavations undertaken in the 1950s were valuable in providing clues for the fittings of the house which now appears as it did in the 1850s.

Museum buildings are open from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm Wednesday through Sunday. Call (314) 638-2100 for more information.

Old Ordnance Room
In1851, the first of two powder magazines was erected at Jefferson Barracks. One hundred and eight feet long, thirty -five feet wide, enclosed behind a stone wall, the Old Ordinance Room is now home to special exhibitions relating to the military history of the park.
