The view is spectacular and the engineering it took to construct this monument is simply amazing. The museum is fun and educational. The "Making of..." movie is fantastic as well. The Arch grounds & facilities are being redesigned and upgraded for the upcoming 50th anniversary, but even through the construction it is still open. This place is going to be... More

I recently spent some time in STL with my family and man did we have a great time. One of the things on our to-do list was tour the Arch. A few things about the Arch... 1) sign up for your time to view the top but understand that your scheduled time does not mean that's when you will go... More

We got there about 9:30 & bought tickets at $10 each to take the tram to the top of the Arch. Fabulous view. Don't go if you don't like heights or small spaces since the. Tram is a tight fit. The museum inside was very well done & the displays were fabulous & there was not a fee. By the... More

Purchased tickets ahead of time. Arrived early & was promptly allowed thru line. Pod ride to the top was fun! Worried about being claustrophobic but was not. Keep it cool inside with fresh air coming in. Only takes a few minutes to get to top. Once ther, room to walk around & take in views. Great morning:)

We had been here many years ago. Nice to revisit. We arrived early, about 8:30 AM, no wait. I had purchased tickets for the ride to the top on the Internet for 9:40. The lady at the ticket booth asked if we would like to go up earlier, and we did. After coming back down, we went through the museum.... More

Ok so if your claustrophobic at all do not plan on going up in the arch! LOL! the setting of the arch is in a wonderful location but getting there can be tricky if the road work is still going on. Worth the effort! Once there if your military check with the service information desk and get your FREE national... More

We had a great time there. We pre ordered our tickets but it didn't seem like that was necessary and you do have to show your id if you do so remember to bring it with you. You park a couple blocks away by the river and walk over it has directions on the ground for you so you don't... More

The movie about the making of the arch was old, but fascinating. The ride to the top was totally worth it.
