Gateway Arch

The Gateway Arch, also known as Gateway to the West, is the beautiful arch centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. The arch was designed by Eero Saarinen, a Finnish American architect, and Hannskarl Bandel, a structural engineer, in 1947 and ended on October 228, 1965 with a total construction cost of $13 million.


If you are visiting St. Louis, never miss to set foot in this wonderful destination and get to see the tallest man-made monument and largest architectural structure in the United States. Bring your entire family in the Gateway Arch and ride a unique elevator up to the top! It’s not just an ordinary elevator, it’s actually a cross between a cable railway and a ferris wheel. On the top of the arch, there is an observation area where you can see a breathtaking view of the whole city. Under the Gateway Arch is an innovative museum and two theaters displaying films about the arch.

The Gateway Arch is open daily from 9am to 6pm and from 8am to 10m during summer. The arch is especially beautiful and breathtaking at nighttime where lights give life to it. Make sure to visit the Gateway Arch with your family and share wonderful times together.
