It's an iconic structure that dominates the skyline. The trip up in these little pods was interesting, but maybe not for the claustrophobic. Each pod seats 5 and you have to duck as you enter and sit pretty much touching your neighbors, but you can...More

I am writing this review for my daughter and husband, who just spent the day-yesterday, 8-20-18- at the Arch and the park there. It was the worst day of their vacation. They were not even up at the Arch 15 minutes and came back to...More

Beautiful green space surrounding the Arch. It is a truly amazing feat of engineering and construction. The ride up and down is in an enclosed pod that seats 5 people. If you are claustraphobic you might want to sit in the mock pod they have...More

I didn't have very high hopes when my wife and I first decided to go to The Arch (you have to go if you are going to St. Louis right?) and I was very pleasantly surprised. The grounds are very lovely, the museum at The...More

We went on a weekday and school was in session so it wasn't too crowded. Bought our tickets in advance and that saved time. Got there early to go through security, but there was no one in line so it only took about 5 minutes....More

This is a phenomenal piece of architecture. The museum is exceptionally educational. It provides interactive activities for all ages. You must watch the video on the building of the Arch and watch the final segment attached for the completion of the Arch.

We enjoyed the view from the top of the arch but it has small windows. The museum on the bottom floor gives a good outline of the trails west. I recommend it for any history buff.

We enjoyed our ride to the top of the Arch. This followed a brief history of the Arch. No one should miss the Gateway to the West when visiting St. Louis.

The Gateway Arch is a must visit at least once in your life. The views from the top are amazing. The whole thought of the arch being built in the 60's and still standing and accommodating visitors is amazing.

I believe it only covers you, but I'm not positive about that. We purchased the $13 tickets which covers everything but the river cruise. There's a $3 discount for seniors. Well worth $10 each.

This is probably the least likely way that someone from Gateway Arch will contact you. Try their phone number that is on the TripAdvisor listing and/or go to the website and go to the "contact us" page. There is a second... More
