Ranger-led outdoor walking tours. Daily at 10:15. Meet outside on our entrance plaza.
Explore Gateway Arch National Park’s trails with a ranger-led walking tour of the grounds. Exercise your body and your mind as you hear stories of St. Louis’ history. Participants should meet the ranger near the Arch Visitor Center entrance. (In case of inclement weather, the meeting place will be in the Arch Visitor Center lobby.)
Ranger-led indoor museum tours. Daily at 11:15, 2:15, and 3:15. Meet at the entrance to the museum (inside the visitor center).
Learn about the Arch's construction, St. Louis’ role in the westward expansion of the U.S., our city's fascinating French origins, or many other topics on a ranger-guided tour of the Museum at the Gateway Arch. Explore six exhibit galleries that focus on over 200 years of shared history. Check the magnet board at the entrance to the museum for each day's topics.
Puppet Shows. Saturdays and Sundays at 2:15. Meet in the Education Classroom, located on the lower level of the Gateway Arch Visitor Center.
Park rangers use puppets to engage with and educate kids and adults alike on the various themes of Gateway Arch National Park. This is a fun and silly child-friendly program.
Touch tables. Daily at 4:30, and sometimes more often as staffing alows. At various locations throughout the museum.
Touch Tables are displays that allow visitors to tangibly connect with the park’s living history collections in a safe and positive environment. Learn about the early fur trade, pioneer toys, sabots (a French wooden shoe), or many other topics.
