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

What a cool venue they have! It’s fun for all ages. We spent a few hours there but could have spent all day exploring the museum. It’s got caves, tunnels, slides, climbing, etc. Something we have never would have thought a museum would be about...More

It was my first visit and it was extremely fun. My only suggestion is to rent the knee pads from the front desk. I saw people with them but didn't know why. I figured it out later. I will go again.

Who would think climbing around on old welded scrap metal would be this much fun? This was a blast for my family. Must go when the weather is nice and dry since most of the climbing things are outdoors. There is plenty of room and...More

Attended the museum as part of a business trip and didn’t know anything about it beforehand. I was blown away by the creative and imaginative development of the space without the limits of a typical museum. It was so much fun and brings a sense...More

Plan your trip around this place. We only had an hour and a half before we had to catch a plane, and an hour and a half was nowhere near long enough. This place is incredible! You have to go if you visit St. Louis!

We were going off of the recommendation of other grandparents that had taken their g-kids there. It was unbelievable! The kids (age 4 and 6) were off and running the moment we got thru the doors. One Tip: get there early in the morning if...More

At City Museum, you can be as daredevil as you want to be. You can swing on a rope like Tarzan if the mood strikes. You can climb up the man-made tree. You can run up and down skateboard ramps. You can slide down the...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.
