For over 50 years, the Gateway Arch has welcomed visitors from around the world. After making $380 million in recent improvements through the CityArchRiver project, we’re more than ready to educate, entertain, and inspire your group.
As part of Gateway Arch National Park (formerly Jefferson National Expansion Memorial), the Gateway Arch is a national historic site offering 97 acres of engaging activities sure to entertain your group members.
Enhance your group’s understanding of the story of the Gateway Arch and the St. Louis region’s important place in American history with a variety of ranger-led programs hosted by the National Park Service (NPS).
The Education Department at Gateway Arch National Park provides education programs and resources aligned with national, state, and local learning standards. Our NPS ranger-led programs can support classroom education with museum exhibits, living history items and period clothing. Rangers facilitate audience-centered programs that feature role playing, decision-making, multiple perspectives, analytical thinking and many hands-on activities to help students better understand the people, places, and events that inspired settlers’ expansion into the western United States and St. Louis’ role in 19th century history.
Please allow 60 minutes per trial or tour. Maximum group size for National Park Service programs is 30. For student groups, one adult is required for every 10 students. Group reservations for National Park Service programs must be made at least 30 days in advance. Programs are subject to availability.
The $3 National Park entrance fee is waived for bona fide educational groups. Fill out our Group Inquiry Form and a Group Sales team member will contact you.
