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...more

Never ending twists and turns of tunnels, small bonfires outside in the fall, hidden treasures in every nook and cranny, this place is eccentric and super cool! Go at night when they turn the lights out and you can explore with a flashlight!

The City Museum is a very unique place and can be a very fun place for older children, but they must be supervised. The Museum has some interesting but dangerous activities that can be found no where else. Also besides the Museum the parking and...More

We really enjoyed this place. It was very unique but you could easily loose your kids because of all the caves and tunnels. The rooftop wasn’t worth $5 extra in our opinion. Glad we can say we experienced the place and would recommend going if...More

This is a unique and fun playground for all ages. Miles of different types of climbing apparatus, jungle gyms, ball pits and obstacle climbs. Dress: athletic shorts or thin sweats, Dri fit shirt. Honestly there’s no need for knee pads. Our son wanted a flash...More

I had heard this place was somewhat dangerous and a good way to loose your kids. I'm so glad we went anyways because it was such a fun experience. We played and ate here with our 12 and 8 year old and had no issues...More

What a cool venue they have! It’s fun for all ages. We spent a few hours there but could have spent all day exploring the museum. It’s got caves, tunnels, slides, climbing, etc. Something we have never would have thought a museum would be about...More

It was my first visit and it was extremely fun. My only suggestion is to rent the knee pads from the front desk. I saw people with them but didn't know why. I figured it out later. I will go again.

Who would think climbing around on old welded scrap metal would be this much fun? This was a blast for my family. Must go when the weather is nice and dry since most of the climbing things are outdoors. There is plenty of room and...More

Attended the museum as part of a business trip and didn’t know anything about it beforehand. I was blown away by the creative and imaginative development of the space without the limits of a typical museum. It was so much fun and brings a sense...More

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.

Not really. I mean there are elevators but as far as getting into the caves etc those are all stairs to get up there. Depending on when you go, we went on a Friday evening after 5 and it was so crowded it would be hard to... More
