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.

Oh. My. Lanta! This place was at the top of my 10 year old's favorite things from Saint Louis! It's $10 to get in and an extra $5 for the roof access which you really should go ahead and add. Based on other reviews, we...More

This is such a fun place to run around and see all the unique areas. I love to explore with the kiddos to see how many places I can get into. You can spend hours there and love each area you go through. A must...More

The day before we visited the City Museum we went to the top of the St. Louic Arch. That experience was so fantastic I didn't think it could be outdone---and I've visited many fantastic structures including the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, and Skylon Tower...More

This 10 story building was full of activities. It offers something for all ages. Activities are indoors, outdoors and on top of the roof! You could easily spend all day there. Be sure to wear long pants, closed toe shoes, knee pads and take a...More

I did not see any giant aquariums when we visited July 2017. There are giant fish made of many different building materials, though!

Check the Metro Transit-St. Louis website. Closest Metrolink light rail station is about a mile walk away, and you'd have to be staying pretty close from the start to avoid multiple bus transfers if you chose that option... More
