This was the first stop when I moved to St. Louis. If nothing else, you have to go to the top for the view, but there is so much more down below. Watch the video on how it was built, check out the museum. Great for families. Even if you're afraid of heights, don't pass up the opportunity, you can stay toward the middle when you reach the top, but it's an experience you have to try.
great way to spend an afternoon. excellent view from the top of the arch... there's also a great lewis and clark museum in the building as well as several theaters running historical films. Price is reasonable!
Only in St. Louis.
This place is, of course, the symbol of St. Louis. And rightly so. No other place in the world can claim a structure quite like this. The architectural accomplishment this steel-skinned structure represents is stunning. Definitely catch the "making of" documentary in the museum below, then make your way to the top. What a thrill!
