Overview

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.

Still lots of fun and still a knee breaker if u crawl through with the kids. It could use some maintenance, the stuff is looking more and more like a junkyard vs art.

We love the City Museum! It’s unique! We love exploring the tunnels and seeing things repurposed! Our group had 8 people from ages 45-3 and we all had a blast! The roof, when open, is worth the extra $5. Every time we go, we discover...More

I had no idea what to expect. I wished we hadn't already walked around all morning because I felt overwhelmed and out of shape. It was an incredible visit though. The city museum brought out the kid in me with all its wonder.

I honestly don't know how this place passes inspections. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. We stayed for maybe 10 minutes total and left. The place seemed dirty and dangerous.

A fun way to spend any day. It is filled with slides, things to climb on and even a ferris wheel. All o the bigger attractions are located on the roof (which shuts down if there is weather issues). I would suggest a visit for...More

They had a blast! Great place that is unique, and exciting! My only drawback is that some of the areas are not usable for most people. There are holes that my 3 year old can fit through, but not even my 7 year old could......More

The City Museum is unique. When I moved to st. Louis in 2010 it was one of the first places I took my 4 kids. They loved the climbing adventure. This is not a typical museum. It seems like the swan song of a retired...More

We went to City Museum not completely understanding what it was, but that did not stop us from having a fantastic experience with our 5 (almost 6) year-old. I personally have never been so tired from a “Museum”, but it is a great feeling. There...More

I’d say Yes, but you may not want to carry them around all day. Carry disposable bottles. Hands free is nice for the climbing, slides etc. I Wouldn’t bring a big backpack either because it’ll get in the way. If you have... More
