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 ride up is in a tiny car that carries a maximum of 5 people (although it is cramped even with 4), the views from the top are spectacular and you can stay up as long as you want

Check another thing of the bucket list! I have wanted to see the Arch since a boy in my grade 4 class talked about his summer trip to St. Louis. This must be true delayed gratification, because that was 46 years ago! It is amazing...More

Buy your tickets online ahead of time. Try for the first visits of the day. You have to go through security screening which can add 20 minutes to your scheduled tram time (think Airport style screening). You go up the Arch in a small 5-person...More

Amazing man made structure. Get your tickets online for early morning tours. The line for the elevator to the top gets very long in a short time period. Awesome view from the top. Be sure to watch the film on the construction of the Arch...More

I went here with my wife, not on business. Loved it. I'm a large man, 6'3" and the train car to the top was cramped. They put 5 people in each car. Ride is 4 minutes to the top and three going down. Windows are...More

Spoiled a fair bit by the construction work, although in the long run I'm sure it will be worth it. Not busy when we visited, so queues and waiting times were short. Not sure it would be worth a long wait during peak times.

One of the keys to this visit is the timing. You can't always purchase tickets on the day you arrive, but if you get there early, you can buy tickets for the next day and select the time. We went on a Sunday around 11am....More

I didn't think that the arch seemed too exciting. I paid the $3 to check out the gift shop and decided to watch the 40 minute movie on the construction process. It was fascinating. Make sure that you take the time to read the information...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.
