Coffee: The World in Your Cup & St. Louis in Your Cup Exhibit Opens at the Missouri History Museum

Last week was a big week for coffee: there was National Coffee Day, a day dedicated to the beverage that many of us consider an essential part of the work day as well as the opening of a new exhibit called Coffee: The World in Your Cup & St. Louis in Your Cup at the Missouri History Museum:

Part traveling exhibition and part exhibition created by the Missouri History Museum, Coffee presents a unique experience for museum visitors. Roughly one third of the overall exhibit space consists of Coffee: The World in Your Cup, a traveling exhibition organized by the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle. The St. Louis in Your Cup portion of the exhibition, which encompasses the majority of the exhibit space, was researched and prepared by the Missouri History Museum staff, drawing from the organization’s own collection. Together, these two stories make up the 6,000 square foot exhibition that is Coffee: The World in Your Cup & St. Louis in Your Cup.
