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.

You HAVE TO GO HERE. You have to. Follow them on FB, Instagram and Twitter. Everyday they are building more and more fun onto this massive playhouse for kids and adults. If you are going to keep up with your kids, I highly recommend knee-pads that you can buy in the gift shop; the outside is AWESOME with a lot... More

That doesn't sound very exciting but the City Museum is an amazing place where adults can be kids again. There's things to climb, slide, and ride. There's even a ferris wheel on the roof.

Absolutely, hands down, one of the craziest and fun places to spend the day with children. Our teenagers and 9 year old loved all of the tunnels and hidden places and easily voted it one of their favorite museums ever! Definitely a must do if you are in the area. No other place like it.

This was so fun but you have to want action. The kids need to be looked after. So I loved the tunnels and climbing things. Lots to see.

This is not your typical museum. It is a fun palace like you have never seen before. If you are visiting St. Louis, I highly recommend a visit to the City Museum. For the ladies: don't were a dress because there are slides and tunnels that are part of the fun.

I actually don't know where to start with the St. Louis City Museum. I know there are places like Disneyland and Universal Studios, but for some they are out of your reach. There is something special and magical about the City Museum. I took my family reunion there on a Friday night last weekend in July 2016. We had my... More

This is a one-of-a-kind place! It has to be the most unique "explore" museum in the midwest. Young or old, it has something for you. From climbing and exploring, to glass blowing and a circus...it's really great.
