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.

Our second trip to this place -- first time with a child -- and I can't imagine how the kid could have had a better time. Come to think of it, I had a great time, too. Many slides, many places to crawl and climb,...More

This place is amazing. No really, every city should have a place like this. The creativity of this place is stellar. There are caves and 10 story slides. There are climbing tubes way in the sky. I cannot even begin to describe how cool it...More

I visited the City Museum by myself on a Sunday afternoon. I’m sure going with kids is a fantastic and fun experience, but if you’re an adult who can still enjoy playing and exploring, it’s still a lot of fun! Definitely a unique place to...More

This is my favorite place to bring visitors to in St. Louis. This isn't your regular boring museum where you have to keep quiet and read plaques the whole time. It's an entire up-cycled playground. This is a place to run, climb, crawl and explore....More

This is a museum like no other. It's located in an old downtown warehouse and covers several floors. There's interactive activities for all ages but mostly aimed at kids but don't get me wrong, adults will be astonished as if you were young again. Plan...More

Like no other hands on museum fun! There's lots of crawling and exploring so this place is best for elementary age through young teens. If you have a preschooler I suggest you find a friend or family that can crawl into all the tiny crevices...More

If you don't like big open spaces high up, you might want to skip this place. If you have kids that love to climb way up high, they will love it.

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.
