About
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

Go with your walking shoes, long pants and a quest for exploring. Oh, a head lamp wouldn't hurt. This old factory has been converted to a huge fun zone for all ages. A 10 story slide, floors of old architecture and a creative reclamation of...More

As far as museums with kids this is my new all time favorite. My 3 and 5 year old had a blast and their parents had a blast. Beautifully designed with the right amount of risk taking to build confidence and give a sense of...More

I've been at City Museum several times with friends visiting us with children. However, I have enjoyed it as much as they did it. If you have children, you MUST visit it with plenty of time since you many activities to do. The city should...More

Older elementary or middle aged kids would love this place. We have 3 older teenagers and they didn't enjoy it too much. Cool place very hands on.

This place is amazing! We were there 7 hours, and we didn't see or do everything. The roof costs an additional $5, but it was worth every penny. The slides, school bus and Ferris wheel were great fun! There is a lot of crawling, climbing,...More

We were in St Louis again this week end and of course we had to visit the City Museum! This is a treasure that you will not find anywhere else!

We attended a wedding reception here and it was a really cool place to have it. It looks like lots of fun for families.

City Museum is an incredible place - the best playground you could possibly imagine, but it is an "old school" playground, made mostly out of metal and is not overly safety proof like most playgrounds today. I highly recommend this place - a MUST SEE...More

I went here on vacation, thinking it would be the same as a regular museum, but I was dead wrong. There are tons of secret passageways everywhere, and hidden playgrounds throughout the "museum."
