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.

I can't believe how lucky we are to have a place like City Museum in St. Louis. It is an amazing place for kids, but is enjoyable for adults, too. It is truly a one-of-a-kind place. Highly recommended for out of town visitors as well...More

Place was like something we have never seen before. Very interesting. My kids were older so were done in about an hour and a half. They thought some of the stuff seemed kind of dangerous....like railings that you could easily fly over. Glad we went...
