ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The Gateway Arch Park Foundation held a members only preview brunch Saturday morning.

The event comes two months ahead of the Museum at the Gateway Arch’s grand opening and attendees got a chance to explore new exhibits that tell St. Louis’ role in the Westward expansion.

Eric Moraczewksi, executive director of Gateway Arch Park Foundation spoke to News 4 about the importance of the new attractions.

“The resounding response we get from everyone is ‘wow, this is amazing’. This is changing the way that people are interacting with the Arch,” said Moraczewksi, “This used to be an hour and a half, a two hour experience. Now they're coming down for three and four hours."

The museum is set to open to the public on July 3rd.
