I have been to the Arch many times in the twenty years I lived in St Louis. It is still neat to see the view from the top. My children also love the ride to the top in the special elevators, although anyone that has a problem with tight spaces may also have a problem. It can also be uncomfortable on a busy day when the elevators are full. The museum under the arch has a wide variety of exhibits relating to the old west, including much material on the various Plains Indians. Add tree shaded grounds overlooking the Mississippi and walking distance to The Landing and it makes for a great day.
