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.

Visited the place after 5pm on a Saturday. It was full packed. They said tickets are cheaper after 5pm. It was $15 for the museum and $5 for rooftop. My son - 4 year old enjoyed this place.

A lot of interesting things to see and do! A little crowded but fun none the less! Really enjoyed watching our kids explore!

This place may have been a little too much for my 2 yr old. There is an unimpressive toddler area on the third floor. My 5 year old is still a little young to participate in most places in this museum by herself. They both...More

I have been to city museum multiple times and it is always a great time. Always being improved. I am an adult with no small children and still enjoy alot that this museum has to offer..it's more like a playground!

If Wonka, Dali, and Tim Burton collaborated on a 10-story play space, and then built on top of each other, they couldn't come up with a cooler place than City Museum. If you are in St Louis for two days with kids ages 5-14, one...More

This place is great but if your claustrophobic I'd stay far away. Lol There are many places to explore from walking accessible to army crawling into a crevice to having to wiggle to get into a hole in the floor. Make sure children understand and...More

What a fun visit. What an amazing place to spend a few hours. Even though we don't have kids, this place was a lot of fun to get lost into. The grand structure and engineering justified the price for us. If only a place like...More
