ST. LOUIS — If you've been wanting to visit the Gateway Arch museum, which opened in 2018, or are just looking for an activity for all ages in St. Louis, fee-free days are the perfect opportunity to visit the Arch for a little less.

While admission is always free, Gateway Arch National Park charges a $3 entrance fee on every adult tram ride to the top of the Arch and tickets to its documentary movie.

On fee-free days, National Park Service fees are waived at the Gateway Arch and all other National Park sites throughout the U.S.

Here are the fee-free days for 2023:

  • Jan. 16 - Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
  • April 22 - First day of National Park Week.
  • Aug. 4 - Great American Outdoors Day.
  • Sept. 23 - National Public Lands Day.
  • Nov. 11 - Veteran's Day.

On these days, Arch tram rides will be discounted from $15 to $12 for adults, and the documentary tickets will be discounted from $7 to $4 for adults.

"Fee-free days offer a great opportunity to experience St. Louis' urban national park," Program Manager of Museum Services and Interpretation Pam Sanfilippo said the fee-free days announcement. "Between exploring the 91-acre park grounds, visiting our always-free museum at the Gateway Arch, shopping at the Arch Store or dining at the Arch Café, there is something for everyone to enjoy."
