Welcome to the Gateway Arch!

As the nation's tallest monument, the Gateway Arch has welcomed visitors for fifty years with its iconic, awe-inspiring shape. The vision of renowed architect Eero Saarinen, the Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson's vision and St. Louis' role in the westward expansion of the United States.
