- The Arch has been a popular tourist attraction since its completion in October 1965. Designed to last 1,000 years, it reaches 630 feet in height; on a clear day, you can see for about 30 miles from atop the structure. Groups of 20 or more can take a guided tour of the landmark. The tour includes a documentary film on the building of the Arch, a visit to the Museum of Westward Expansion and a trip to the Old Courthouse, which is famous for hosting the legendary Dred Scott Trial.
