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.

Words literally cannot describe how awesome this place is. The first time I had ever been was at least ten years ago. Every time we visit family in the area this is a MUST. There are new things added each time we come. I can't...More

This missed the boat for us... I think it should be billed as A Children's Wonderland. It certainly looks like fun for kids with slides and tunnels and climbing etc but as far as a city museum... um, no. There were occasional elements.. but there's...More

$13 admission fee plus $5 for the roof pass. Very fun. We went early when it opened at 9:00 am before the families or groups which was ideal. Apparently it’s more of an adult place at night as they sell beer. I think that would...More

Just go. Stop reading, climb to the top of a ten story slide and ride into the weirdest most perfect museum. If your local museum doesn’t sell knee pads at the admission window they are doing this wrong. The city museum so perfectly typifies the...More

The City Museum was a great time when I visited St. Louis. It has all the things kids dream of, it's essentially a super cool jungle gym, with caves, slides, art areas, and more. The caves were a definite favorite. I’ve been a few times,...More

Great place to take kids of all ages. Be prepared to climb with little ones. Some places lids could climb don’t necessarily come out the same spot.
