ALERT: The Gateway Arch Ticketing & Visitor Center has relocated to the Old Courthouse at 11 N. 4th Street. The walking distance between the Old Courthouse and the Arch entrance at the SOUTH leg is approximately 0.3 miles (7 minutes of average walking time). EACH guest planning to enter the Gateway Arch will be required to have EITHER a Journey to the Top ticket or an Arch Entry-Only ticket to be allowed access to the facility.  Tram tickets will sell out early and often - advance tickets are strongly recommended.

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.
