Arch Views & Museum

My last couple of Monday posts have been about the famous St. Louis Arch. The reward for getting to the top is spectacular views - on one side is the mighty Mississippi River.
On the other side you can see the city, including the ball park.
And the famous Old Courthouse is nearby - I'll blog more about this soon.
Underneath the Arch (literally - it's below ground level) was the Museum of Westward Expansion, although it closed shortly after our visit. It included some good exhibits, and its replacement is expected to open in the spring of 2017.
And that's all I've got from the Arch.

  8. That couurthouse looks beautiful but is dwarfed by other architecture! I've traveled through St Louis but never toured it. Are the leaves pretty in the Springs?

  13. What a view! I hope the new and improved museum will attract many visitors. Missouri was certainly the starting point for many who traveled west.
