Soldiers Memorial Military Museum in St. Louis Undergoes $30M Renovation
ST. LOUIS — The Missouri Historical Society is nearing completion of a $30 million renovation of the Soldiers Memorial Military Museum in downtown St. Louis. Wiegmann Associates has completed work on the HVAC system and provided design services to KAI, the mechanical engineer of record, to reduce equipment costs and develop an energy-efficient system that protects historical exhibits. BSI Constructors is the general contractor for the project. The museum’s lower level was refurbished to increase exhibition space and the second floor has been converted into office space and meeting rooms. President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the memorial site in 1936 and the museum opened in 1938. A reopening is currently scheduled for Nov. 3.
