About the Tour

Built in 1856, the Alexander Majors House originally served as the base of operations for Majors’ overland shipping company, Russell, Majors & Waddell. Majors was instrumental in the opening of the west, both because of his freighting company and his co-ownership of the Pony Express. Visitors will learn about his life and businesses, as well as daily life in the nineteenth century for wealthy Missouri families.

Self-guided tours of the Majors House allow guests to enjoy the museum at their own pace. Knowledgeable docents will be present during your tour to answer questions. Guests typically spend 30 minutes to an hour in the museum.

Guided tours are led by a docent and last from 45 minutes to an hour.

Guests arriving separately will be asked to exercise a 6-foot social distancing space from other guests in the museum whenever possible. Please do not visit the Majors House if you feel ill. Masks are required for all tours.
