Mr. Martin's Missouri History class went to downtown St. Louis to see the Gateway Arch National Park. This includes both the revamped museum below the arch and heading up to the top of said arch to see the surroundings of downtown St. Louis. The museum helps explain why St. Louis was such an important city when it came to the expansion of the United States out west after the Louisiana Purchase. We also got to learn about the design of the Arch and why it has such an important history for the city of St. Louis!

It was founded in 1988 by Larry Shaw, an employee of the San Francisco, California science museum, the Exploratorium.
