Spring and summer are busy times at the Arch. Sometimes we sell out of tickets to visit the top. Reserve your spot in advance online or by calling toll-free 877-982-1410

To view ticket prices and buy tickets online for the tram ride to the top, riverboat cruises, and the acclaimed documentary Monument to the Dream click here. Park visitors 16 and up pay the $3.00 entrance fee, visitors 15 and under the entrance fee is waived. On Fee Free Days, periodically throughout the year the $3.00 entrance fee may be waived.

Due to security measures at the Gateway Arch, all visitors to the Arch must pass through an airport style security checkpoint. No weapons-including firearms, knives, pepper spray, mace or electronic weapons-are allowed.

During summer and school holidays, lines may become long throughout the day, so we recommend you arrive early to increase your chance of purchasing a tram ticket. Groups of 20 or more may call in advance for reservations.

For pricing and group reservations, call toll free at (voice) 1-877-982-1410
