Gateway Arch National Park Overview

The Gateway Arch reflects St. Louis' role in the Westward Expansion of the United States during the nineteenth century. The park is a memorial to Thomas Jefferson's role in opening the West, to the pioneers who helped shape its history, and to Dred Scott who sued for his freedom in the Old Courthouse.

Entrance Fees

Museum under the Gateway Arch - $0
Admission to our museum, cafe, and gift store is free for all visitors.
Gateway Arch Entrance Fee - $3
The entrance fee is $3.00 per person. Entry is free for children under 16 and America the Beautiful pass holders. The tram ride, movie and riverboat cruises are an additional fee for adults and children. Admission to the Museum Under the Gateway Arch is free.
Entrance - Per Person - $3
When park visitors 16 and up buy tram or movie tickets, $3.00 of their ticket price goes to the National Park Service (entrance fee). Therefore, if visitors have an America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, they do not have to pay that $3.00 fee and they effectively get a $3.00 "discount" on the tram ride to the top and the documentary movie. If you wish to browse in the Museum and Visitor Center, there is no entrance fee.
Documentary Movie - $7
How did they build it? Come see the award-winning film Monument to the Dream and find out! The film documents the construction and meaning of the Gateway Arch and is shown daily at Tucker Theater in the Gateway Arch Visitor Center. The film is a half hour long, and America the Beautiful park pass holders get a $3 discount.
Tram Ride to the Top - $19
Tickets to ride to the top of the iconic arch are available at gatewayarch.com. Prices vary from $11-$19 based on visitor age, date of visit, and whether visitors have a park pass (America the Beautiful passes earn a $3 discount).
