The first step in developing a sound educational curriculum for our Museum has been to identify the Missouri Learning Standards that are most relevant to the museum. Providing learning experiences based on these standards, the National Museum of Transportation takes its rightful place alongside the St. Louis Science Center, and the St. Louis Zoo, as a first-rate location for learning.

See below for booking details, or call (314) 821-1193 for more information.
