The Fabulous Fox Theatre in midtown St. Louis certainly lives up to its name. When you walk through the doors, you can’t help but be awed by the ornate architecture and attention to detail. Luckily for us, the theater was fully renovated in 1982. Now you can learn more about the theatre, and the renovation that restored it to its full glory, at a special display at the Missouri History Museum. The exhibit showcases artifacts and memorabilia from the personal collection of Mary Strauss, widow of the developer who oversaw the renovation. You can see this rich part of St. Louis history every day until November 4th.
