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.

Super cool museum with so much to do and see. We cannot wait to bring the kids next time. And surprised to hear it was open to 1am on Saturdays!! Never heard of a museum open so late.

This place is amazing for kids, but you have to pay three times -- once for the main floor, once for the roof, and once for the aquarium. There is no pricebreak for buying all three tickets. That, to me, kind of sucks. Nevertheless, it probably worth the price, even if it is a bit expensive for a family to attend.

If you have a downtown hotel, it's about a 15 block walk. The walk is "safe" to make, though, and it's interesting to see a bit of downtown St. Louis on foot.

The owner and founder of this museum really knew how to capture the imaginations and hearts of kids of all ages. Our kids loved their ability to do "free exploring" without any idea as to where it was going to take them. The theme of this creative venue is "No Maps". So be sure to have plenty of time on your hands when you visit this museum, because you never know where you will end up and your kids will not want to leave.
