ST. LOUIS (October 27, 2020) – Happy birthday, Gateway Arch! As the tallest monument in America marks its 55th birthday on Wednesday, October 28, the public is invited to submit their best personal photos of the Arch for inclusion in a 55th birthday commemorative collage that will become available digitally.
Submissions may range from beauty shots of the monument, to snapshots from festivals and fairs held on the park grounds, to photos from family trips and field trips.

In celebration, the National Park Service will project vintage photos of the Arch’s construction on the large screens in the “Heading West” exhibit area in the Museum at the Gateway Arch.
