Museum After Hours: "Holy Joe" Folk, Governor of Missouri

1/3/2018 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

Join museum director, Tiffany Patterson, as she explores the life and work of one of Missouri’s forgotten governors.

The Missouri State Museum’s “Museum after Hours” events are held the first Wednesday of each month when the museum galleries remain open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
