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.

This place is such a great workout for adults and kids. Several areas for adventure - make sure you bring a small flashlight on a string! Or buy a shoestring flashlight there! The caves at the bottom and crawling is great if your kids listen and stay within distance of you since they are so small they can move really... More

My friend and I had such an amazing time at the City Museum. Definitly suggest purchasing the Roof Top access! I could have spent another 2 hours in the City Museum there was so much to look at, climb on, slide down, basically be a kid again!

I was tricked into going, and it was nothing like what I had in mind of a museum. We had three young ones with us and I must admit I think I had more fun going through all the tunnels with them than they did. It was very different. Do don't even think museum, try and think of a hands... More

This is quite an interesting and unique place. You could actually spend a couple of days in order to see it all. Very neat place to visit. Kind of pricey and not a real good place for the littler children but overall a good place to spend the day.

A very cool museum highlighting creative works with recycled materials. Sort of like a fun house. Best for families with kids up to 12 but teens would enjoy a one time visit. Suggest you go in Late Afternoon for discounted prices. Do not leave valuables in car!!!! Fir the mist part, this is in a safe area, but thieves prowl... More

You HAVE TO GO HERE. You have to. Follow them on FB, Instagram and Twitter. Everyday they are building more and more fun onto this massive playhouse for kids and adults. If you are going to keep up with your kids, I highly recommend knee-pads that you can buy in the gift shop; the outside is AWESOME with a lot... More
