Our daughter's family visited during the past few days from the East Coast, so a trip to the Arch was on the agenda. The children were 11 and 12 so there were no problems getting into the "pods" that hold five people each that take you to the top. We went on a Friday, the weather was beautiful, and I... More

Family was in town visiting we decided to check out the famous Arch and were not disappointed. This memorial was very well staffed, and the staff was very professional, tour guides were loud enough and helpful. I can't wait to go again!

It is definitely worth going up into the arch at least once, although its $20, it is a cool experience going up to the top. However, I would not recommend for people who are claustrophobic or afraid of heights. Even if you don't go up in the arch, you can still check out the museum or see the arch from... More

It was exciting to see and stand underneath the arch. Now when I see it on television, it will have a different meaning.

We didn't get a chance to ride to the top due to time constraints, but the Arch and park were BEAUTIFUL. Would return again. A MUST in St. Louis...

We had not been in the Gateway Arch for almost 30 years, so it was nice to return. The exhibits inside the Arch museum were very impressive and interesting. The small gondola type cars that take you to the top of the Arch are not made for the guest who’s overdue for a Weight Watcher’s meeting, since it’s a pretty... More

Our family really enjoyed the trip. We spent over half of the day there. The museum tells a great story, and the arch was so much fun for the kids. it was an over cast day but you could see most of the city. Our family will return soon.

It's one of those places that when you are there and looking up it's hard to fathom just how big the thing actually is. TV does not put it in perspective at all. The museum inside is very interesting and the lines move right along. It was foggy and cloudy the day we went so no point in going up.
