Didnt know what to expect on how to be transported to the top. Tight quarters. Very nice view and fantastic museum. Very crowded, reservations a must. Not much to the park except nice to stroll around.

Very cool historical monument. Spend the $4 to watch the film on the building of the arch. You will gain an appreciation for construction in general. You can go up into the arch...600+ feet up in the air...we did not do that.

We visited the Gateway Arch on a beautiful Friday. It is definitely a sight worth seeing; the "View from the Top" was amazing. We purchased advance tickets the same day via phone & bought the Captain's Deal which gave a slight discount for also doing the Riverboat Cruise & the Tram (riding to the top of the Arch). Had we...

When visiting St. Louis, you must visit the Gateway Arch. During our trip to St. Louis during April 2014, the weather was great and the view at the Gateway Arch is breathtaking.

I mean, jeez, it's among the iconic spots in the US! no need to spend too much time there, but to grasp how this was built and still stands is enough in itself to check it out.

The Arch is nice. Nothing spectacular once you are at the top. It can be a little crowded trying to get a peek out the window. However, the museum in the lobby/entrance of the Arch is very nice and informative. I really enjoyed visiting the museum more than actually going up to the top of the Arch. I selected the... More

My daughter & grandson went up in the Gateway Arch while granddaughter & I remained on the ground. There was plenty for us to do while they were up high. We went to the gift shop, spent lots of time in the museum & read all about the building of the Arch. There are two movies that allow you to... More

I went with mu friends, we enjoyed the museum under need of the arch. We went to the top of the arch, it has an amazing view of the city and the river. Although people who is scared to heights cannot go up to the top, I highly recommend the museum.

I lived in STL for a while and visit a lot and took my girlfriend this year. I'm afraid of heights and find myself atop the arch every time I go. It's a must when you're in the city. If you are fearful of heights I suggest you go when it's windstil. Like many buildings the arch is designed to... More
