Facilities and capacity
For decades the Gateway Arch has stood tall and proud as a symbol of America’s pioneering spirit. The Museum at the Gateway Arch invites couples to add their chapter to the history of one of the nation’s most iconic sites. The venue is a truly grand offering with multiple event spaces that, when combined, can accommodate over 1000 guests. Its Mezzanine space has an open-plan design with a boundlessly high ceiling and ample natural light from the entrance lobby’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Its white walls and use of glass throughout create a setting that feels light, airy, and uninhibited. Such a minimal decor scheme allows couples to be creative when decorating the space as they wish. Its terrazzo floor creates a map of the United States, allowing guests to trace the paths of the pioneers whom the museum celebrates. Elsewhere, the Tram Lobby provides a secondary setting for a wedding party amongst its sculpted walls and concrete pillars. Awash in industrial chic, its coffered ceiling features stylized uplighting for a dramatic tone. Its 100-foot video-wall is ideal for any audiovisual needs couples may have. Guests can also enjoy the museum’s galleries to learn about the arch’s history.
The Museum at the Gateway Arch’s staff presents couples with a range of services designed to make planning their big day easy. Couples can avail of the museum’s All-Access Experience package which includes access to its galleries and tram rides to the top of the arch. Here couples can pose for an unforgettable wedding photoshoot against a backdrop of the St.Louis skyline. The museum’s management welcome outside vendors and have built strong relationships with some of the city’s best wedding professionals.
