      EXHIBIT: St. Louis World's Fair: Celebrating 115 Years

      Experience a small slice of the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair at the Haan Museum, as they celebrate the 115th anniversary of the Fair. The Colonial Revival mansion served as the Connecticut Building, and now houses major artifacts from the Fair. Three massive vases exhibited there by Weller Pottery, including a 7-foot vase that won a gold medal for the Arts, are always on display. You’ll also find works by T.C. Steele and Charles Conner that were on display in the Fine Arts Palace at the Fair.

      Featured paintings from the Indiana Building include works by William Forsyth, John Elwood Bundy and Frank Girardin. Other major Fair souvenirs in the exhibition include andirons, a mandolin, zither, accordion, telephone, a Majolica statue, a 1760 candle stand that was displayed in the building at the Fair, a blow gun, stereopticons, and a wide variety of smaller objects.

      The World’s Fair was where nations, states and companies showed off the very best products and technologies of the time.

      Admission: $10 for adults; $5 for ages 5-17.
