Museum of Westward Expansion Programs
New exhibits at the Old Courthouse . . .
New exhibits in the Old Courthouse allow students to continue learning about westward expansion while the Museum of Westward Expansion is closed. Exhibit themes cover colonial St. Louis, Lewis & Clark, mountain men, Plains Indians and pioneers.
National Park Service rangers will use living history items, such as clothing, tools and documents, in addition to museum exhibits and historic images to teach students about the people, places, and events of American westward expansion during the 1800s.
