Trip Planner: USA / Missouri / Saint Louis / The Gateway Arch
Take in spectacular views of the city from 192 m (630 ft ) in the air atop The Gateway Arch. This "Gateway to the West" is the city's most iconic landmark--and the largest manmade monument in the Western Hemisphere. Examine the structure's stainless-steel architecture and impressive engineering from the banks of the Mississippi River before riding a tram to the top. Don't miss the Museum of Westward Expansion directly under the arch at the visitor center. Put The Gateway Arch and other Saint Louis attractions into our Saint Louis holiday maker website, and watch your holiday take shape.
The Gateway Arch reviews
Hadn't visited here in 30 years and enjoyed it more this time around. Easily got tickets with my phone, and got to go up even earlier than expected. Amazing views from top, even caught my teenager...

It's cool to see. I don't know that I'd need to do it more than once. Buy tickets in advance. You can also check the website around 900a and see if they are any available tickets. I checked and got a ticket for the same day. You have to go through security as it's a national landmark. They have a museum area after that and other setups to learn about the arch and its history, there is a gift shop and cafe inside. Line up at your time... there aren't many people lining up until about 4-5 min prior to the scheduled time. You stand in line for a while before you get to go back. There really isn't a benefit because you get assigned a group 1 through 9. You sit with your group in the pod up and down...maximum of 5 people
Wonderful experience! It was cool driving through town and seeing the arch get bigger and bigger as we got closer. Then to be standing under it was amazing. The view from the top and museum were fabulous. The tram ride was faster than expected. We’ll worth the time and Money!
