Museum of Westward Expansion, St. Louis, MO

Located under the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Westward Expansion hosts exhibits dedicated to the exploration done by Lewis and Clark as well as Native American history.

We toured the exhibits but the educational content was well over my 4-year-olds head. He did, however, enjoy the displays of buffalo, canoes, and teepees. Trey also completed a workbook the park rangers gave him and he earned yet another Junior Ranger badge.

Had we more time, I would have watched the “Monument to the Dream” documentary about the Arch’s construction that plays in 70mm film at the Museum’s Tucker Theater.
