New Museum Exhibits Come to the Old Courthouse!
Changes are continuing to come to the Old Courthouse! New museum exhibits focusing on westward expansion and colonial St. Louis will soon open in the Old Courthouse’s exhibit galleries – and access to them is free! The exhibits have been developed from those in the now-closed Museum of Westward Expansion under the Gateway Arch. Educational programs will resume in the newly refurbished galleries starting in May.
