The Museum of Westward Expansion closed, pending installation of all new museum exhibits. As of March 2, 2015, entry-only ticket or tram ticket required to enter Arch. The nation's tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors since June 1967. The Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and the role St. Louis played in the westward expansion of the United States. A visit to St. Louis isn't complete without standing at the Arch's base and playing professional photographer, but the view from the outside is only half of the experience. Attractions within the Arch include the Journey to the Top (the last tram leaves one hour before closing); educational programs (will be housed at the Old Courthouse); award-winning documentary movie, Monument to the Dream; and a gift shop. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Note: the address shown is for the Old Courthouse which is acting as the Gateway Arch Ticketing and Visitor Center throughout construction. Pedestrian entrance to the Arch Grounds is at Walnut Street at Memorial Drive or via the Grand Staircase from the riverfront.

The park rangers were fantastic at telling the history of the monument. Had a wonderful time on the grounds and below, dispute ongoing construction. Would love to go back when the upgrades are completed.

Book your tickets in advance if you want to go in it! Tickets sell out early and you must have a reservation. Literally all of downtown points you to the Arch so even if you don't go in, make a point of taking a quick...More

Although we didn't go into the arch because of time constraints, it provided many awesome photo ops for me while downtown. As this was the tourist "off season" there were no long lines and the weather was beautiful, so this would be an ideal time...More

The Arch was under construction during our visit in October 2017, but it didn't detract from the experience. The size of the Arch is hard to comprehend until you're able to stand beside it and stare up to the top. Tickets for rides to the...More

If you don’t like tight spaces...good luck! You sit in a small pod equipped for 5 people and it takes 4 minutes to get up to the top and 3 minutes to come back down. Took my mom and 2 kids (4&6) up to the...More

It appears they are doing a lot of work around this St. Louis landmark. The wait to get to the top wasn't too bad, but our 3.5 year old got a little restless near the end. The view from the top was cool and we...More

The video show has lots of interesting information about the construction. The ride to the top was quite interesting. You get in to pod that tightly fits about 5 people. The pod has a glass door that allows you to see where the pod travels,...More

Great experience. You get to take a ride up to the Observation deck in an enclosed tram. The Observation deck is amazing you can see so much. For me the best view was over the baseball stadium (Busch Stadium).

Our guests from North Carolina were eager to see the Arch. We went in the morning and it was not too crowded. Also learned that your Golden Age Passport from the National Park Service will save a considerable amount on the entry fees. Got our...More

Not that we could see; however, the parking garage next to Eads Bridge is a flat $5 fee. They do, however, accept cash only.

The distance between Gateway Arch and the ball park is six blocks. If you can walk without difficulty, you can park at the public parking garage across the street from the stadium and walk to both venues. We didn't take... More
