Arch trams will be closed starting November 28 and will remain closed through mid-March.

The nation's tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors for more than 50 years. 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 (housed at the Old Courthouse during construction); award-winning documentary movie, Monument to the Dream; and a gift shop (new store opened Spring 2016).

Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Note: the address shown is for the Old Courthouse which will be acting as the Gateway Arch Visitors & Ticket Center throughout construction. Pedestrian entrance to the Arch Grounds is at Walnut Street @ Memorial Drive or via the Grand Staircase from the riverfront.

CLOSURE ALERT: The Gateway Arch trams will not be operating from December 2016 through February 2017 due to scheduled maintenance. The Gateway Arch Visitor Center, documentary movie - "Monument to the Dream" and Arch Store will remain open during the closure. The trams will resume operations March 2017.
