Making Local Memories: Children’s Television in the Ozarks @ History Museum on the Square

August, 25 2021 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

157 Park Central Square Springfield, MO 65806


Join us here at the History Museum on the Square as we take a look back at Springfield’s children’s television with a wonderful display that includes videos and images and artifacts of Springfield shows like Birthday Party, Romper Room, Television Classroom, Sesame Street, and more. Also, we will be debuting one of our more recent artifact donations directly from the set of The Children’s Hour! We are thrilled to be exploring our community’s history and individual memories about local children’s television programming and how children’s entertainment has changed from the 1950s to today. This exhibit will be on display from July 21-October 17. General Admission applies.

Thank you to our Exhibit Sponsor: Ozarks Studies Institue – Missouri State University Libraries.
