“Beautiful on a fall day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had a great visit with our kids ages 14-8. The leaves were falling around the Arch, and the stroll through the large trees with the beautiful views was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

“Nice park and museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Have been here several times and it is always nice to visit for a day trip or weekend activity. Park is nice and the museum under the arch is interesting and fun for the kids.

“Gateway Arch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

There is a lot of history here. It is a worthwhile stop if you are passing thru. The Lewis and Clark Expedition documentary is interesting...seeing how the early American settlers labored for this country.

“Wonderful visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is a beautiful park on top. As you get closer to the river it gets a little dirtier. But there are no homeless hanging around like other cities and the grounds around the arch are beautiful. Check out the ponds, so pretty!
