This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: After three persistent critics of the Missouri History Museum walked out of a meeting of the Zoo-Museum District board Tuesday, remaining board members voted unanimously to give the museum more than $448,000 that had earlier been denied.

The money, called “excess administrative fee revenue,” comes from the unused portion of the 5 percent in tax receipts that is withheld by the ZMD for administrative expenses. It routinely is allocated to the history museum and the four other institutions that are part of the district.
