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...more

Ages about 3 - 14 will love this place. :Plenty of physical exertion required! Great indoor activity but even better in nice weather when the roof is open.

This is an awesome to play big or small. Some areas may be tight for the adults but it is a great time. There is also a lot of information about the architecture around St Louis.

This large indoor attraction is a "must-see" for children of all ages. The museum is amazingly housed within and around an abandoned 4-story warehouse. There are indoor and outdoor activities including children's playground, tunnels, architectural displays, caves, and a skate park. We spent an entire...More

This place is amazing. Kids young and old alike will love the hands on fun and learning of the city museum. If you have a chance make a stop here it's worth your while!

The museum is always full and such a fun place to explore. It is always changing and growing and developing new areas. On busy days it is harder for small children, and can be a bit of a sensory overload, with the noise, and people....More

I took my 2 daughters, age 4 and 7, to City Museum after hearing how fun this place is--but, be warned-- if your kid is at all scared of heights, darkness, small places, or pretty much anything else you might as well just stay home....More

Very unique venue built for kids. Parents will enjoy the odd or different play areas, many built from discarded equipment. Won’t find anything for kids like this anywhere else.

This place is more like an amusement park, rather than a museum. But unlike any amusement park you have ever experienced. There is no one fixed theme or sections. Just a lot of weird and exciting and whacky things, all in just one place. And...More

This is a late post, but this place is awesome. A family of 5 split up kid duties and enjoyed getting lost. Beware, some areas may be too small for grown adults. Tips: Bring knee pads, store lunch items in the cooler of your car...More

Please don't. As much as you love your dog, other people don't. Would you want someone who loves their small pet snake to bring it in? Rat? Chicken? Where do you draw the line? Service animals - yes. Pets, stay home.

Not really. I mean there are elevators but as far as getting into the caves etc those are all stairs to get up there. Depending on when you go, we went on a Friday evening after 5 and it was so crowded it would be hard to... More
