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.

This place is amazing. Like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Full of climbing, heart racing, workout fun. Great for old and young and definitely challenging in some parts. That being said, you can totally relax and let your older children (9 or 10+) roam through...More

I knew it was going to be fun when, just after entering this crazy looking place, my daughter had us descend into a dark hole in the floor and then start crawling down some tunnel. Definitely pay to go up on the roof and climb...More

My family of 7 visited the City Museum on a very hot day in June. It was our first visit, and we couldn't wait to get to the rooftop. We opted to ride the elevator to the roof. It became stuck between 2 floors. We...More

This was my second visit to the city museum. The first time was on a very limited time crunch, so I wanted to go back and take a little more time. I’m a 52 year old woman and I took my older sister and 75...More

My 9 year old daughter didn't want to leave after 5 hours if fun. So many paths and slides, you just don't know what you'll find! Tips: If it's summer, start outside before it gets hot. Wear comfy clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Wear...More

The city museum is well worth the money to stay all day. Lots of climbing. Would recommend knee pads for adults. The kids loved the outside just as much as the inside. The only thing I would complain about would be the slides should have...More

No matter your age or interests, City Museum has something you'll love. Like to explore? No maps of the attraction exist -- so you will definitely experience the joy of discovery! Like art? The entire museum is a work of art. From the staircases to...More

I would say no. It is not a child safe place. I would say a child would need to be old enough to be out of the parents site for periods of time. There are very small passageways and slides that only one person can go through... More
