Saint Louis Ambassadors and the State Historical Society of Missouri are partnering together to create the Missouri Bicentennial Time Capsule.

Organizations and institutions, businesses, as well as local and state government agencies in Missouri are invited to participate by contributing three items: one to represent your past, one to represent your present, and a note to future Missourians. Items should measure no larger than 8.5 x 14 inches – i.e. no larger than legal size paper – and combined be no more than a quarter-inch thick.

Complete the online contribution form then mail your items to:

The State Historical Society of Missouri
Attn: Time Capsule
605 Elm Street
Columbia, MO 65201

You will be notified once your items are received and sent a certificate of contribution. Contributions will be accepted through August 10, 2021.The Missouri Bicentennial Time Capsule will be sealed on August 27, 2021, at an event in St. Louis hosted by Saint Louis Ambassadors. Once sealed, the time capsule will be housed at the State Historical Society of Missouri until August 10, 2046, when it will be re-opened and shared with the public.
