Boring!

Nothing to view, I guess you can stand there and imagine it's history but other than it's significant location adjacent to the arch, it's nothing to see.

I visited this Cathedral during one of their mass services so I wasn't able to look around much. The experience however was purely breathtaking.

Interesting Architecture

A nice place to stop for a rest as you walk around the Arch area. Interesting architecture and you can visit the museum inside for $1. They make it very clear with signs you can't use their restrooms.
