Visiting the Gateway Arch: Enter the monument through the Gateway Arch Visitor Center, which faces Fourth Street and the Old Courthouse. The Gateway Arch legs are exits only. Please allow at least 30 minutes to go through security. Tickets sell out early and often, advance reservations are strongly recommended. Pending availability, additional tickets may be available for same-day purchase beginning at 9am each day through our website, call center, and ticket center at the Gateway Arch. Same-day ticket availability is not guaranteed and sells out early and often.
National parks are exciting places for pets, too! Your pet can become a B.A.R.K. Ranger and serve as an ambassador for responsible and safe pet handling at Gateway Arch National Park. B.A.R.K. stands for: bag your pet’s waste, always wear a leash, respect wildlife and know where you can go.
From 9 a.m. to noon, meet the park ranger outside the new west entrance of Gateway Arch National Park to participate in the “Take Your Human for a Walk” program, where pets can also become a B.A.R.K. Ranger and earn a special bandanna.
