We did not go in the museum, but did look at all the houses in the vicinity....we really enjoyed the architecture and were in awe of the massive size of these dwellings--it was almost like every house was trying to outdo the next!

Robidoux Row provides some insights into life in St. Joseph when the city served as a busy hub for pioneers heading westward.

Fortunately, this structure was saved from the highway cutting through years ago. The museum now gives a very good look into the founder and early days of St. Joseph and the surrounding area. It has a good collection of artifacts and does not take too...More

This is a unique historic structure built by the founder of Saint Joseph. He was a French Trapper and rented "rooms" to fellow trappers and MO river travelers. Closed til spring.

We did a drive by with a tour guide and didn't get to see inside. The row is significant because it was kept from being destroyed and the building is one of the older in St. Joseph.

It's a small museum but interesting. I like it when the curators are passionate about their places. It doesn't get many visitors but they are appreciative. Interesting story behind the place.

Great history of trapping, fur traders who settled the area and so much to see. It's an unpretentious museum in a not so great neighborhood but is a must see! We thoroughly enjoyed the artifacts, tour guide and exhibits in such a relaxed atmosphere!
