This is definitely a must-see in St. Louis. Even if you are not very interested in tourist attractions, this is still the symbol of St. Louis. You appreciate it on an entirely different level when you are standing next to it, seeing it in person. Travel to the top of arch...if you dare! The elevator is a pretty small pod... More

Construction near the site did not deter us from enjoying the magnitude and beauty of the arch. The "underground" is a hidden gem for all ages. If you go. Please take the elevator pod to the top. Just breathtaking! As with any tall structure, part of the joy for me is the construction and history. The park does a nice... More

Great place to visit. The tram cars to the top are very cramped, but are not bad. The view is amazing and the museum below is very nice.

If you come to St. Louis you must go up inside the arch. Yes, it is really amazing to see from the outside, but it is quite the experience to go up inside to the top. Spectacular views as well as historical information.

Expected bad traffic, parking and lines to see the Arch but was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was. Parking at lot next to Busch stadium (remember to validate ticket). 5 minute walk, following the "this way to Arch" signs on pavement. Short security line which was similar to TSA at airport but no shoe removal. Since we were an... More

This is well worth taking the time to see. If you have an interest in engineering or not this is truly amazing. Although the view of the arch externally is something to see you must take the time to go inside and see the amazing view from the top. You may want to think twice about going to the top... More

There's no way you can visit St. Louis without visiting the Gateway Arch! The price is reasonable. It was a lot of fun. I liked looking out the windows and seeing miles. I parked at the garage a couple streets over and I think I only paid $5 (winter prices most likely). Enjoyed wondering around inside the visitors center. There... More

I was a bit apprehensive about heading to the top because I am claustrophobic and hate heights but I hate missing an experience even more, so I did it. Its such an awesome experience. Should be visited by all!

This is a most amazing engineering feat. The ride to the top in the Arch gives you a chance to see forever. The museum on the lower level is great with (when I was there) a exhibit on Lewis and Clark and the journey westward. Also had a nice gift shop and snacks available. The movie you see is on... More
