So great! Our navigation was incorrect. When heading toward St. Louis you exit the highway and turn right then left onto highway ZZ. Not too far down the road on the left side next to a little store. The rocker is hidden behind trees as you approach so watch for the store. Probably 2 miles or so off the highway. Great picture.
Okay! Wow! Elk, bison, raccoons, turkeys, geese, chipmunks, turtles....etc. It was absolutely amazing. Truly a hidden gem! A must see. We saw all of this from the car....but you can also get out if you want to.
Even if you don’t want to go up into the arch you need to go into the ticket/entrance building and watch the film about the arch. There is also a big museum downstairs that follows a timeline of the westward expansion. Extremely well done. Highly recommend. Plus, bonus a great place to eat and reasonably priced. Wonderful experience. You can’t appreciate the arch until you understand what it took to build it.
So much bigger in person. Super great! Well worth it. Easy to find. Right on the main road.
Fun picture. Worth it and very easy to find.
This was such a fun spot. We passed it the first time because the trees do hide a small part of it. However, if your alert it is right there along the highway so keep your eyes peeled and you will see it. Well worth it.
Wow! A little gem. Our navigation stopped us about a quarter mile short so be sure to keep going until you see the water or at least hear it.
October 2018 Fantastic! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was so impressed. Everyone should go at least once in their lifetime. The two movies were so great. We had lunch at the Emzaras Kitchen before we went inside the Ark. That restaurant is a 10. I don’t ever eat at buffets....never! But I ate here and it was better than any sit down restaurant I have ever been to. The whole day was just wonderful. You will be so glad you went...trust me!
October 2018. Definitely worth visiting. The museum and store are free to visit. There is a small fee to take the tour of the manufacturing area. It’s well worth it to see the bats made. The MLB bats are made right there on site. A lot of history in this building. Plus the free souvenir bat at the end was a great bonus.
October 2018. It’s a beautiful building. However, there is a sign posted stating that it is only open on the weekends and it’s $5 per person to walk the grounds. Directly across the street is a small park with a stream. It’s very pretty.
