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.

Unlike any other museum in the country, a hands and feet experience for children and adults! Do NOT miss this if you are visiting StL.

The City Museum isn't my 'cup of tea', but don't let me scare you away. It's a very popular attraction with people who live here & with out-of-town visitors.

Bob Kasilly, the guy who conceived and built this was a genius, and after his early demise, is a legend in St. Louis. His sculptures adorn the Zoo as well as many other locations around town. But, his first love and his real contribution to the urban landscape was his complete and loving make-over of this old building he bought and refurbished to be the most delightful experience that a kid could have.

You have never visited a place like this. The pictures do not do it justice. Expensive, but worth it. Kids will go nuts, as will parents who will have to deal with a lot of noncontrol. Think tunnels. It is a monument of artistic genius and history.
