Gateway Arch officials announced this week that Journey to the Top will be temporarily suspended beginning Monday, Nov. 28, to allow for replacement of the motor generator sets and to upgrade the tram’s electrical system. Rides are expected to resume in spring 2017. Though tram rides will not be available, the Visitor Center, The Arch Store and the Old Courthouse will remain open. Free showings of the documentary “Monument to the Dream” will also be offered.
The Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse will both be closed Thanksgiving Day but will reopen with extended holiday hours Friday, Nov. 25 and Saturday, Nov. 26: The Gateway Arch will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and the Old Courthouse will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The holiday weekend is typically busy, so visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at www.gatewayarch.com/buytickets, in person at the Old Courthouse or by calling 877-982-1410.
