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.

It's a weird place with loads of crazy things in it. It was quite an experience, and although we tried some slides, toys and climbs it was not that much fun. Kids went crazy for this place that's for sure, but I got pretty bored...More

The place is amazing and safe. We only missed playing at the rooftop bc they close it in winter. My advise for younger kids is to buy them the flash light with the head band. It’s easier and they won’t lose it.

It's really hard to describe this place. My best try would be to call it a 12 story sculpture playground. Kids and adults will love it. I wouldn't recommend visiting if you have trouble walking.

I love this museum!!! It will awe even the adults. It is all made out of reclaimed materials and it is super impressive. I would suggest not taking a toddler, they would enjoy it but they could get lost. it is unconventional family fun!

There is something for just about anyone to do at City Museum. I have visited several times with my teenage siblings and adult friends, and we have always had a wonderful time climbing, crawling, and sliding around this enormous jungle gym. A few things to...More

Its not a museum, although it has an interesting assortment of stuff to see and feel. It is more like an adult-size jungle gym that you walk around and crawl through. The unexpected things around the facility are strangely intoxicating as you try to experience...More

There is so much awesomeness about this peculiarly exciting place that it’s hard to write a review. I’ve been here twice. The first time was before I had any kids. I was in St. Louis for a fraternity pref night- a giant group of us...More

This is a great place to visit with kids - so much to do, they were totally exhausted by the end of the day, lol. Awesome place, well worth a visit!

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.
