Question about the arch--how long do you need to experience it? How long does the ride to the top last and is there a long wait? Family will be there on Sunday.
ride to the top is 4 minutes, ride down is 3 minutes. It's interesting how you go up to the top, I won't spoil the whole thing. There's a couple of shops there, an antique shop and a general gift shop. I spent like 2-3 minutes at the top as the only thing to do is take pictures.
There are other things there to do related to lewis and clark.

Thanks. Thinking about having them visit the arch around 7-8pm at night.
Any fun family restaurants to hit on Sunday? They may spend the day at City Museum, eat, then go to the arch.
If you are going to the arch at this time, I would buy tickets in advance. If you don't you are taking a risk of not going up. The place will be busy right up until 10PM when it closes. Also, the last train to the top goes at 8:50PM.
Was there last summer, it was crazy at the top, but some awesome views at night.
Good advice to get your tickets when you get there, then spend some time walking thru the museum. It's got a western expansion theme with a lot of stuffed wild animals (a huge buffalo), covered wagons, etc.
