Welcome to the Cape River Heritage Museum
… where history comes to life. Since the founding of Cape River Heritage Museum in 1981, our exhibits and programs have introduced visitors of all ages to the life, culture, and heritage of Cape Girardeau and Southeast Missouri.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Cape River Heritage Museum offers an ever-changing lineup of exhibits. It's worth coming back as there is always something for everyone to enjoy.
