  • Although riding to top of arch is open, one is not informed until a difficult and unmarked path leads to a ticket booth at the base of the arch saying the museum portion is closed. A kind park ranger ...  more »
  • The Arch is still open, but the area around the arch is under construction. Don't let that deter you there is still a lot going on and it is still worth the visit.  more »

  • When I entered the building I asked if it was the Museum of Westward Expansion because I did not see a sign with that name. The park service staff told me it used to be under the Arch and it closed but some of the exhibits are now in the Old Court House, which is the building marked in Google maps (March 2017). I was confused but I toured the museum anyway. I learned so much about the St. Louis area, Dred Scott and westward trade and exploration. Some of the exhibits are a little old and I did not see newer, updated interactive exhibits for kids, but I still encourage families to take children. All the kids I saw were having fun! I enjoyed the exhibits and the architecture. I'm not sure if this location is mislabeled on Google or something. I'm still confused about where I spent my afternoon but I had fun!
  • I ever visited this place on Oct 2010. i have some photos.
  • Some interesting info about St. Louis and it's history
  • Good!
