M+H Awards Shortlist

We are thrilled to announce that the Museum at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, has been shortlisted for the prestigious International Project of the Year category for the 2019 Museums + Heritage Awards.

The newly opened Museum at the Gateway Arch is a core component of the $380 million scheme which has included 11 acres of new park space and a museum expansion with new, inclusive exhibits designed by hsd.

The Museum at the Gateway Arch, part of the National Park Service’s Gateway Arch National Park (formerly known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial), replaces the original museum which opened in 1976, and provides an exciting, interactive and reflective look into the Westward Expansion of the United States and the important role played by St. Louis.

The Museums + Heritage Awards celebrates innovative and ground-breaking initiatives from museums, galleries and heritage visitor attractions across the UK and overseas. The winners for 2019 will be announced on 15th May.

Best of luck to the Museum at the Gateway Arch!
