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.

Not for people with a phobia of small spaces. Trams are small and tight. For 13 dollars it was worth the time. Good photo ops

The Gateway Arch is an inspiring sight, not to be missed on a visit to St Louis. Tickets to the Arch had to be bought at the Old Courthouse and I was glad I had remembered to pack my National Park pass for the discount....More

I never knew you could go to the top. Parking was simple to find on an early Sunday in November. Plenty of park area involved so you can get your steps in as well.

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!

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 bought our tickets online ahead of time. We bought the combo Tram to the Top ($13) & Riverboat Cruise ($20). You can go into the base of the Arch to the gift shop for free, but you still have to go through security. You... 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.
