**ALERT for November 28, 2016 - March 2017**: The Tram Ride to the Top of the Arch is TEMPORARILY CLOSED for system improvements until March 2017. During the closure, no ticket is required for entry into the Arch facility for shopping at The Arch Store or watching the award-winning documentary, "Monument to the Dream" (free showings throughout the day). The Museum of Westward Expansion closed, pending installation of all new museum exhibits. As of March 2, 2015, entry-only ticket or tram ticket required to enter Arch. The nation's tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors since June 1967. The Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and the role St. Louis played in the westward expansion of the United States. A visit to St. Louis isn't complete without standing at the Arch's base and playing professional photographer, but the view from the outside is only half of the experience. Attractions within the Arch include the Journey to the Top (the last tram leaves one hour before closing); educational programs (will be housed at the Old Courthouse); award-winning documentary movie, Monument to the Dream; and a gift shop. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Note: the address shown is for the Old Courthouse which is acting as the Gateway Arch Ticketing and Visitor Center throughout construction. Pedestrian entrance to the Arch Grounds is at Walnut Street at Memorial Drive or via the Grand Staircase from the riverfront.

Confusing layout but fun to see and go up in the arch. Also, lots of walking involved so on a hot day take water. Worth a visit and spending a few hours.

Happened to be in St. Louis for business, and it shocked me how striking the arch is. From a mile away, a few blocks, or right below. It changes with the sun and never ceases to surprise. The trip to the top was really fun...More

Great place to visit and certainly a civic treasure. The new green space should be beautiful as well the westward expansion museum.

This is a fun and cool landmark. Be careful since it is not located in the best section of town however the views are awesome and it worth the time for a short visit.

We went, paid $20 dollars to park nearby. Nothing there but the arch, (porta-potties ruined the photo line, I photoshopped them out) a small museum, and a ride to the top. No venders or food carts, no shops. It’s a nice park, but no playground...More

Make sure it’s a cooler day when you go visit. There are not many shaded areas near the arch. Covered in sweat! Beautiful arch though. New park opening soon 😊

Came with a group of Coworkers and my family. We enjoyed this and my daughter loved the view of the city. Parking was rough because of construction so hopefully it gets better.

It was just beautiful the day we were visiting St. Louis. We walked around the arch enjoying the lovely area. We also went up into the arch. Our teenagers just thought this was awesome. The views of the city are stellar.
