“nice, free”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The museum of the history of taking the land from the Indians- oh, sorry, of westward expansion- is nice for kids, but guidance would make it much better for the kids. And it's free.

Excellent location to view the rest of the city as well as the river, watch the barges go by, stretch your legs.

“History lesson made fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

So many things to do other than just going up to the top of the arch. Set outside on December first for a long time and just had an amazing conversation.

“Very relaxing visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I traveled to St. Louis the summer of 2010. We really enjoyed the Arch and all of its surroundings. Relaxing in the park during the evening and walking through the museum underground were very fun! The elevators to ride to the top of the arch were interesting and could be an issue for someone that doesn't enjoy small places...but the view from the top is amazing! Cannot wait to take our daughter when she gets older!

“A St. Louis Icon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

It's the most conspicuous structure in downtown St. Louis and it's worth exploring this side of the Mississippi River.
