For years I want to visit the Arch and now I have. It is a great experience walking around the monument and the grounds before you go down to get on the tram. Please read the cautions posted about being in the tram car, it is small. They have a sample car next to the ticket booth to try out.... More

Taking the ride to the top is the best value I've seen in ages! I don't do heights, but decided to brave it since the price was so reasonable.. SO glad I did!

It is certainly something to behold when you are walking toward it............it is a definite landmark for St Louis and worth the walk/drive to see it.

At first the arch was simply something to check off the list of landmarks to visit, but once I arrived I was pleasantly surprised how easily you could go to the top of the arch and see so much in the museum below. The skyline view from the top of the arch is just wonderful to see; there is so... More

Gateway Arch is huge, that's the first word that comes to my mind. Not only it is high, but it is also very large... Below it, you can find some nice attractions like the West Museum, the cinema and the nice shop 19th century style. Of course, the top attraction is the chance of going up the Arch and see... More

If you like views from the top of a city, this is it! We took some advice and arrived early, 10ish, and had no line. I've also heard that the cars carrying you to the too can get a little warm, but at this hour we didn't find that to be the case. This might not be for you if... More

It was a 100 degree, humid day when we visited the Arch. The walk from the parking garage was quite long, but tree-lined. Once we got to the entrance to the arch, we were happy to go inside and cool off. Admission was free, however, there was a fee for some of the attractions including riding to the top. We... More

This is the must to see place in STL. If you come early morning you can make fantastic pictures of the Arch. Underground museum is very nice. Make sure you visit Old Courtroom being just across the street,

Visiting St Louis then you have to go up the arch! Tip book in advance on line and pick up your tickets after you've gone through security. They are valid for 7 days so if cloudy after you itv collected them go up later in the day or another day. Do visit the museum, lots of interesting facts. Also view... More

I love skyscrapers and tall buildings, I've visited Willis Tower, John Hancock Center, Rockefeller Center but this was something special! Unique structure. It's hard to explain the feeling being up there. Do not miss this!
