About Us

The Missouri Humanities Council serves communities, life-long learners, local museums & libraries. The humanities consist of subject matter spanning literature, philosophy, religion, history, and the list continues.  At MHC, we believe that the humanities are a valuable part of the human experience no matter one’s age, education, or life experience.
