St. Louis, MO (KTRS) Soldiers Memorial Museum in downtown St. Louis is set to close for two years for a renovation project.
The $30-million project will focus on re-doing the museum’s interior and outdoor improvements will include better lighting.
The complex was built in 1935 to honor of World War I veterans. President Franklin Roosevelt spoke at the monument’s dedication in 1936.
Designers are still planning potential exhibits for the redesigned museum after it reopens.
The museum is scheduled to close on February 28th and re-open in 2018.
