NPS Fee Free Day

The Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse are part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial National Park. Each year the National Parks offer days in which they waive the entrance fee for each park. The $3 entrance fee is included in each adult Tram Ride to the Top & Arch Entry-Only ticket. On the “Fee Free” days, that $3 will be waived, reducing the Tram Ride to the Top price to $10/adult. Though the Arch Entry-Only ticket fee will be waived, a ticket is still required for entry into the facility through June 30, 2018.

2018 Schedule:
January 15 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
April 21 – First Day of National Park Week
September 22 – National Public Lands Day
November 11 – Veterans Day
