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 arch is almost 50 years old and looks sparkling new. It overlooks the mighty Mississippi River and towers over downtown St. Louis. There is a lot of construction in the area, I believe the City Leaders are trying to improve the park around the...More

I was really looking forward to the Gateway Arch, I mean how can someone visit St Louis and not go to the Arch right? Wrong! It most certainly was not worth it. Yes it's a great view once you get to the top, but here's...More

I recommend purchasing tickets online before your visit. We had 9:40 AM tickets. We had no trouble finding parking and we were at the memorial by 9 AM. We were scanned in and went on an earlier tour as there was room. If you are...More

I don't think any visit to St. Louis would be complete without a stop at its most iconic landmark. The Arch as a unique and impressive structure. You can go up to the top. It's a great view, but be warned: if you don't like...More

September the weather is still good to walk around in the evening. It opens to 10:00pm for the summer, but after Labor Day, it closes at 6:00, a little bit early.

The massive renovation project going on around the arch will be fantastic when complete, but right now, expect some minor inconvenience. The ride to the top is a must and is very well managed with minimal waiting if you plan ahead. Staff were most helpful...More

So glad to finally see this iconic structure. Had no idea what to expect. It's almost futuristic - little pods take you to the top of the Arch. It was very crowded at the top so it was not as enjoyable as I was hoping....More

Hello, You care correct in that is not a height, weight, size, or age restriction to go the top of the Arch. However the tram cars are on the small side and we want all of our customers to feel comfortable and enjoy their... More
