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.

“Most Unique Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very interesting and lots of fun for all ages. Only word of caution is that it can be difficult for adults to keep up, or even keep close to the kids! Lots of fun, we will return in better weather.

Great place for the kids, and grandkids, of all ages. Very visually stimulating experience with the bits of St. Louis and Regional History scattered throughout the museum.

Definitely recommend

“Fun for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Going after 5 was a huge value and they are open so late! The place is huge and there seemed to be no issue with adults and children exploring alongside each other. Would suggest for ages 6 and up - stay til they drop!

I have been to the City Museum lots of times. I have brought my niece and nephews, my cousins and friends. All different ages and everyone enjoyed it. No matter what time of year it is.
