Pedestrian Access to the Gateway Arch From Downtown
Pedestrian traffic on the Chestnut bridge will be closed as of today Monday, March 31, 2014. This will leave the Pine St. bridge as the Arch grounds point of entry to and from the city. The new Walnut St. bridge will open next Friday to foot traffic.
Jefferson National Expansion Memorial online exhibits feature some of the various historic interpretative exhibits that are produced by the in-house Exhibits Department. Included in some of the exhibits are original artwork, maps, documents and artifacts. In addition, graphic reproductions are created to assist in telling the story if an original is no longer available or too fragile to be put on display.
Many of these exhibits are showcased in galleries in our Gateway Arch Visitor Center and in the Historic Old Courthouse. If you are unable to visit in person please return to this website periodically to view some of the exhibits online.
