St. Louis, MO –

St. Louisans will soon get to see how the nation's presidents have lived - and even how they've slept.

A new exhibit on the American Presidency opens Sunday at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.

It's the last leg of a Smithsonian national exhibit that's showcasing artifacts that were used by leaders, past and present.

And the exhibit also links the presidency with St. Louis.
