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.

Despite being deathly afraid of heights, I went to the top of this monument and I don’t regret it! The view is unbelievable.

Everyone should ride the elevator to the top of the Arch! What an experience. And the view from the top is magnificent! You should see St. Louis from up there! Pretty awesome!

We loved the experience at the Arch. Not for the claustrophobic because the trams to the top are small and well, small. The view from the top is wonderful. Rated 4 stars due to the meandering way we had to fibd a place ti pack...More

This is a must see attraction. It’s 3.00 to go into the arch or you can pay 13.00 to go in and take the ride to the top. Kids are free. The carts to the top are small and if you have claustrophobia, I would...More

It was very interesting and the tram ride up to the top was very retro. The perspective offered by the view through the tiny windows of the arch was mesmerizing.

We enjoyed going to the top of the Arch in St. Louis and looking out over the surrounding countryside. The ride to the top is in a pod that curves up the arch. You feel like you are in a spaceship. The view is great...More

The park isn't completed, but the Arch itself is a beautiful work of steel. A must see when visiting the area.

Seeing the Arch up close is a much different experience then seeing it from a far. Come back and enjoy the park when construction is complete. Thanks for visiting and posting.

Great place to visit. Don't worry about parking. There are plenty of parking lots near the Arch since there is not one designated for the Arch only. Enjoyed our tram ride to the top of the Arch. Don't go though if you have problem being...More

Do not go if you are claustrophobic...it's a small space but the view was worth it. Who doesn't want to take this ride upwards over the skyline? There is a cost and sometimes a line, but most of the time you can enjoy it in...More

As for the time of day, it tends get more crowded as the day goes on. There is usually a small rush at the beginning of the day but drops off by 10:00 am. However January and February are slowest times of the year for us... More

Not that we could see; however, the parking garage next to Eads Bridge is a flat $5 fee. They do, however, accept cash only.
