Gateway to the Stars: Ghosts of the Arch Grounds

Join our upcoming FREE stargazing experience!

Once a French colonial village and then primarily a warehouse district, the area of Gateway Arch National Park has always been central to the history of St. Louis. Learn about some major events, both great and tragic, that shaped the history of the area.

This Ranger led program will meet outside on the Gateway Arch Visitor Center entrance at 6:30 pm, unless there is rain.
Weather permitting, free telescope viewing will follow on the Plaza. View craters on the Moon, Saturn’s rings, and Jupiter’s moons!
