A Day at Gateway Arch National Park
SAINT LOUIS, MO - Formerly known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, the 91-acre park became the Gateway Arch National Park in 2018. The 91-acre park, located along the Mississippi River in St. Louis, includes the Gateway Arch, Museum at the Gateway Arch and the Old Courthouse.
Take the 4-minute tram ride covering 630 feet to the top of the Gateway Arch. Completed in 1965 celebrating the westward expansion of the United States during the 19th century and its pioneers, the Gateway Arch is the tallest man-made monument in the U.S. Enjoy stunning views that stretch up to 30 miles to the east - including the Mississippi River and beyond - and to the west - including the Old Courthouse and St. Louis (pictured here). Following the ride to the top, you can explore the new Museum at the Gateway Arch, opening July 3. Within this innovative and interactive museum, six themed exhibits trace the story of Native Americans, exploreers, pioneers and rebels who made America possible. Adult tickets for the tram ride are $13. Visiting the museum is free.
