Connect with the past, present and future while exploring six interactive story galleries in the museum.
Experience over 200 years of historic events, multi-cultural influences and the inspiration behind the Gateway Arch.
Challenge yourself to consider different perspectives and discover previously untold stories. Rethink and reimagine the city of St. Louis and westward expansion with each story you encounter in the museum.
You can experience the galleries chronologically or just wander as you spot something that catches your eye. To start in chronological order first head to Colonial St. Louis on the right side of the walkway after you pass the giant screens. There are interactive elements for young people (or the young at heart) in each gallery. Every gallery also features touch stations for those with low or no vision to have the opportunity to experience a representation of a key artifact from that gallery.
