Owner description: 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. Finally, just so you’re aware, The World Aquarium is not part of City Museum, but a non-profit located within us. There is an additional charge to go in their space.

“Excellent value - Go visit if you can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had some time to kill before our conference, so we went to the museum. I was with a group of teenagers and they loved it. We spent a few hours there and they really could have spent a lot more time there. The place is loaded with things to do and places to crawl around on or into. I found it to be a real gem and very inexpensive. We traveled with a group and received a group rate. I know I wished my own children were along because they would have had a bast!

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Coolest spot to take kids, ever. Huge and fun, indoors and out. Lots of little restaurants and even beer for the 'rents! Dad and I had a pretty good time too climbing in the huge outdoor jungle gym ;)

“So fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Perfect for the family or a date night. Especially love the late nights with the lights out on the weekends. We have been multiple times and plan on visiting many more times. Different experience every time.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This place is amazing. So much fun for kids, but we were three adults in our late twenties and we had a blast. This is everything you could hope for in a museum and so much more. Definitely dress for a lot of physical activity. Note for parents: I noticed a lot of parents losing track of their kids (totally easy to do in this place) so maybe have a plan in place ahead of time.
