The Holocaust Museum & Learning Center of St. Louis

Renovation of the museum’s current space, as part of a larger construction project, for a new Center for Positive Change and a Learning Center, which would include multi-media capacities and would comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The St. Louis Holocaust Museum & Learning Center is applying for a grant to renovate and expand the current museum transforming the museum into an ADA compliant multi-media experience where visitors can explore current events through the lens of lessons taught by the Holocaust. There will be a Center for Positive Change which will connect the lessons of the Holocaust to today’s local, national and global challenges through a highly-flexible, interactive and collaborative digital space for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The Learning Center will offer expanded programs educating visitors through interdisciplinary programming, lectures by scholars and survivors, films, art installations, theater productions and temporary exhibits. The Archives and Research Center will ensure that our extensive and rapidly-expanding collection of artifacts from the Holocaust and the period surrounding the Holocaust will bring long term benefits to the community, scholars, and the humanities.
