Concordia Institute Museum

Lutheran History

Save to my Account

From the birth of the Lutheran Church in Germany to the formation of the Missouri Synod, this small, but surprisingly comprehensive museum tells the story of one of Missouri’s largest Christian denominations.

The exhibits include a duplicate of Luther’s death mask, a reproduction of the ship Halco that brought his followers to the new world, and a look at how St. Louis welcomed Lutherans to the city.

Much more than an indoctrination in Lutheranism, the museum also explores the influence of Christianity during the two world wars and particularly a Lutheran ministry to SS officers held for Nazi war crimes.
