This exhibition seeks to highlight two recent acquisitions in the context of a broad collection of textual and illustrated editions of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer from the fifteenth century to the present at the Mercantile Library. We focused on The Canterbury Tales, the Prologue and the stories about them that have inspired generations of artists, and on the important Mercantile acquisitions of the rare Caxton printing of the Tales and a nearly forgotten facsimile of the famous Ellesmere manuscript of the Tales, created in meticulous detail and brilliant color over a century ago.

Housed in a beautifully restored 1896 building, the museum features an extensive collection of telephones manufactured from the early 1900s through the 2000s, hundreds of pieces of telephone-related equipment and memorabilia and military telephones from WWII through the Vietnam War.  It is located in the historic Jefferson Barracks Park, a 15 minute drive south of downtown St. Louis.

 

The self-guided, accessible museum has many hands-on, how-things-work displays.  The displays were created to inspire an interest in engineering and history.  

 

Guided tours are available for groups of 10 or more and should be scheduled at least two weeks before the tour. 

 

The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.
