Overview

Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge.

We went here for a friends birthday. We acted like kids, looking, touching, climbing etc. Everywhere you look that was amazing structures built from all kinds of objects. The outside adventure area doesn't open until May. If you want to move fast on the slides...More

What a unique museum. Reused "City equipment" that you can climb on, in and explore. Even saw an artist at work! There are multiple floors to explore. If you are uncomfortable with heights then don't go to the roof. Fun for all ages. On site...More

Yes, it's for kids. Yes, it's expensive. The imagination that went into creating this place is amazing. Crawling with kids. And adults crawl, too. Go in good weather because the outside structures are the best.

City Museum is like nothing my family has ever seen. My children had a great time exploring all the areas of the museum. So much to do that you should dedicate a full day to this activity. Fun for both kids and adults who still...More

The City Museum is unbelievable and difficult to describe. It is a bit overwhelming to the senses but not in a bad way. While there is an entry fee to this museum, it is well worth it. I found 98% of the things in this...More

There's not much more I can say, and I am fully aware that no words can convey the awesomeness of this place. It defies the imagination (& logic!) There are nooks & crannies , stairs & slides absolutely everywhere. My daughter is on the less-than-daring...More
