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.

The Gateway Arch is gigantic and beautiful. It sits in the middle of a well-kept park on the west bank of the Mississippi. It is absolutely fantastic once you get up to it and it honestly exceeded my expectations. It costs 3 bucks to enter...More

An architectural wonder! If you are going inside the arch, get yout tickets online and do it early! Make sure to pay attention to the location of your tickets as the construction around the arch makes navigation interesting!

But your tickets in advance so you don’t wait in line. Other than that it is very interesting and so fun for all ages. Don’t miss it.

This beautiful arch ranks right up with other historical and architectural landmarks in the United States like Mount Rushmore, Golden Gate Bridge, etc. That being said, the best experience is from the outside. Enjoy the views as you approach. Walk around (best you can, with...More

I wonder how this magnificent landmark is on TA's Nr. 9??? In my opinion it's the prime reason for any tourist to visit St. Louis. It's visible from far away, while approaching St. Louis on I-55. The Arch symbolizes the gateway to the west explorations...More
