Overview
More
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.

This was a truly interesting experience. The beginning of the tour is a bit cheesy, but it had some good info. The actual “pods” are tiny, and I can’t imagine having 5 people in them. It was a fun ride up and the view is...More

The iconic arch is beautiful in person. The elevator wasn't running when I stopped by so I did not get to go the top. There is a park area around the arch with a small pond. It is a pleasant area to take a leisurely...More

The arch is wonderful, but it is part of a larger national park that is well worth the time as well. If you want to go up into the Arch, especially on a weekend, I recommend getting tickets in advance. The ticket office is inside...More

We went back for our anniversary to visit the St. Louis Arch we visited on our honeymoon. It is always interesting to see the city from the arch, but now with all the new renovations to the grounds, it is so much more easily accessible...More

The ARCH is the definitive symbol of St. Louis. The grounds are being refurbished, but still worth the minor inconvenience. Get your tickets ahead of time, don't forget to use your senior pass for those who have it.
