The Museum of Westward Expansion charts the entire history of the 19th century American West, from the Louisiana Purchase to the closing of the frontier in 1890, and preserves some of the rarest artifacts from the days of Lewis and Clark. Through our exhibits, you can explore the world of the American Indians and the 19th century pioneers who helped shape the history of the American West.
The museum highlights the people, places and events of the American west during the 1800s through an extensive collection of artifacts, mounted animal specimens, authentic Plains Indian tipi, and an overview of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Make a stop at one of the museum shops for a wide selection of books, videos, posters, and educational materials.
The Museum of Westward Expansion is part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (Gateway Arch and The Old Courthouse). It is located below ground, beneath the Gateway Arch.
