Due to the shutdown of the federal government, the Gateway Arch and Old Courthouse, which are part of the National Park Service, are closed.

They will resume operations during regularly scheduled hours as soon as the government reopens.

Ticketing and tram operations at the Gateway Arch as well as ticketing operations at the Old Courthouse are also closed. For those who have purchased a scheduled tram ride to the top or Arch entry-only ticket during this time, tickets will be refunded as soon as possible.

Other Gateway Arch experience activities such as helicopter tours, which are not part of the National Park Service, will remain open during this time. (The Riverboats at the Gateway Arch and the Arch View Café are currently closed for the season.)
