Kick off your weekend at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park! Thursday Nights at the Museum is a weekly series that is sometimes the most fun, sometimes the most thought-provoking, and always the most interesting night of your week. The museum exhibits are open late, and you’ll enjoy cash bar and food for purchase, pop-up activities, concerts, lectures, and more. Thursday Nights at the Museum is sponsored by WashU.

Target: St. Louis Vol. 1 delves into the covert experimental testing carried out by the U.S. government during the Cold War. This 2021 documentary recounts the Aerosol Spray Study, which tested known harmful chemicals in the Pruitt-Igoe housing community and other predominantly Black neighborhoods in north St. Louis, shedding light on the lasting impact of these actions. Join us to view the film and stay for a conversation with director Damien D. Smith and former Pruitt-Igoe resident Ben Phillips.
