Your Panorama Photos of St. Louis Could Hang in the Missouri History Museum

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2017 at 1:54 PM

We've all been there: You're at Busch Stadium, or Forest Park, or the Arch, or a concert, and you try channeling your inner fancy photographer by taking a panorama shot on your phone. If done right, it looks awesome — but now you have a photo that's awkwardly wide for any normal phone screen or Instagram post. What are you supposed to do with the thing?

Give it to the Missouri History Museum, of course.

The museum is currently doing an all-call for panorama shots of St. Louis for a new exhibition, "Panoramas of the City." The 6,000 square-foot exhibition will also feature panoramic shots of St. Louis from 1900 to 1950, so visitors can feel like they're stepping into larger-than-life scenes such as Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 "welcome home" celebration or the League of Women Voter's march down Olive Street in 1920. In addition to the historic shots, however, the history museum also wants to feature panoramas of St. Louis from the present day — and that's where you come in.

The museum wants the public to send in panoramas of St. Louis, from the skyline and crowds to sporting events and neighborhoods. All you have to do is tag the Missouri History Museum in your panoramas on Facebook or Twitter using the tag @mohistorymuseum, or hashtag your photo with #MySTLPanorama. You can also submit them by email at

The "Panoramas of the City" exhibit will be open from September 2, 2017 to August 12, 2018, and admission will be free. For more about the museum and the exhibit, visit

And while they didn't say anything about payment, haven't you always wanted to include a line about "featured in a museum" on your résumé?
