Attraction details
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.

My kids, ages 10 & 12, had a blast climbing, sliding and running around at this quirky, surreal museum. My daughter did start to climb over a railing that wasn't meant to be scaled and could have fallen, but I was able to re-direct her quickly before she got very far along. Some of the climbs there are odd and challenging, and I think she saw this railing as a challenging way to get across an obstruction. But otherwise we were very pleased with our visit here and the kids were asking to return another day.

This is a great place for fun for all. There is much to do and see. You can be as active or as quiet as you would like to be. I have attended the City Museum for corporate events and was very well received.

The city museum is a delight for young and old. The are many things to keep your children entertained and you will delight at watching the joy on their faces. Plan on spending at least a half a day there. Keep an eye on your kids though, there are many tunnels, mazes etc and you can lose sight of them.
