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.

We have visited the City Museum many times over the years and it is still fun every time. There is a great toddler area with a treehouse, a train to ride, and huge legos for kids under 5. The rest of the museum is full...More

My daughter (nine) and I enjoyed our time at the museum. Some of the areas are dark and hard to navigate (cave areas) but overall it was a lot of fun. The coolest part for us was riding the ferris wheel on the roof which...More

This is absolutely hands down the coolest, most amazing place I've ever been in. I think technically it's probably an art museum, but life size. I felt like Alice, I felt like Harry Potter, I felt like I was suddenly transported to every fantasy novel...More

This was an amazing place ,so much to see so you need at least 2 days to see most of it . A few to few elevators and plenty of steps. Lots of great thrilling slides. Lots of aviation history.

This place is great for kids to spend several hours and enjoy all the amusement. It is also fancy architecture for the adults to peruse as well. If you are in Cinn, OH..........you should stop by.

Expected it to be a complex web of climbing gyms, but didn't expect 19th century architecture and iron works, nor a live circus-like clown show. We spent just about a whole day there. Because it felt like -22 outside, we ate pizza at the museum....More

Friday evening will be the least crowded time of the holiday weekend. We do allow kids in after 5 pm, we just require them to be with an adult 18 years old or older.
