ALERT: The Tram Ride to the Top of the Arch is TEMPORARILY CLOSED for system improvements until late-April 2017. During the closure, no ticket is required for entry into the Arch facility which includes The Arch Store and the award-winning documentary, "Monument to the Dream". (free showings throughout the day).


Please Note: The Museum of Westward Expansion, located under the Gateway Arch is closed for significant renovations. Certain artifacts from the Museum are on display in exhibit galleries at the Old Courthouse.


For special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, reunions or private receptions, plan an event your guests will remember aboard a charming riverboat on the mighty Mississippi River – with a spectacular view of the majestic Gateway Arch.

Whether you are planning a small intimate event or an all-out party, find the perfect package for your special occasion needs. With a riverboat celebration you will make history of your own.

A riverboat photographer is available with special arrangements. Entertainment, audio or visual equipment, decorations and chair covers must be arranged separately. Please contact Natasha McIntosh at 314-923-3047 for preferred vendors or additional information about reserving a private charter aboard the Gateway Arch Riverboats.
