Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives
101 E. Broadway
Excelsior Springs, MO 64024
The Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives houses the largest collection of Excelsior Springs artifacts and art anywhere. In recent years, several traveling exhibits have been displayed here. The building itself is a major attraction, designed by noted architect Louis Curtis as the Clay County State Bank, with unique arched ceiling and reproductions of “The Gleaners” and “The Angelus” — considered invaluable today.
Offering displays in two historic buildings, the museum gift shop has specialty items including the famous “Tripp Flag” print. Kids will enjoy playing on the replica of the Lake Maurer Special train engine. A genealogical center is also housed in the museum space.
