Owner description: 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.

I went here this past weekend... it was a huge fun factory. It was also a good workout as I woke up sore this morning. Could be the aging too. A bracelet gets you in and out. Would probably pack lunch and drinks in the car, as a gatorade was $3 and food was pricey as well. But $12 to play all day was definitely worth it!

This was a really neat concept, but if you are expecting a nice place to relax and look at some art, you better think again. If you are not a big fan of kids definately avoid this place. This is more like a Chucky Cheese then a museum.

City Museum is such a fun family attraction they just keep adding more and more. The mosaics are beautiful. Watching the kids climbing and jumping and playing does a heart good too. I recommend this for ever person who lives in St. Louis to go at least once. Great fun for all!

This is the most imaginative and involving of any kids museum I've ever seen. Like walking into another world of free flowing creativity. Excellent for kids, teens and gaping adults. It is AWESOME!

We took my 5 year old grandson here last summer and we all had a great time. Many slides and a lot of climbing. Great views from the rooftop playground. It's a great place for kids that are a bit older, 5 is about as young as I would go. It's a really unique place that is great from about 5 all the way through adults. A fun, different place to go.
