John Deere Collectors CenterMore beautifully restored tractors at the Collectors Center. There were also some old John Deere signs on the walls as you can see in this picture.

Penguin and Puffin CoastAnother unique exhibit was the Penguin and Puffin Coast, which was brand new for the season we were there. The penguins and puffins were so close to you you could have touched them (I might have tried if it wasn't for the zookeepers nearby).

Museum of Westward ExpansionUnderneath the arch, under the grass, is a large museum called the Museum of Westward Expansion. It chronicled the reason for the arch's existence -- the commemoration of the Lewis and Clark expedition and the settling of the West, in which St. Louis played a key role. There was also a small model of the arch, which a friendly employee offered to snap our picture near.
