A local landmark.
The Cape Girardeau Heritage Museum is located at the old police and fire station, dating back to 1908. Regional history exhibits are ever changing and dioramas, interactive and personal presentations add to the experience. The Cape Girardeau Heritage Museum is a delightful way to familiarize all ages with what life was once like on the banks of the Mississippi River.
A thoughtfully set-up research library on the second floor is available by prior appointment for interested researchers.
