College of Curiosity in St. Louis

(From official site)

College of Curiosity is an intense one-day conference and workshop held at the indescribable City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, May 26th, 2012.

This event features lectures, demonstrations and self-guided exploration into a wide variety of curious topics. Our goal is to broaden your horizons by demonstrating some of the amazing things that are part of the world in which we live.

$30 adults

$15 kids 12 and under

Admission includes:

All-day admission to the museum, including MonstroCity
Entrance to Pre-Show Performance
Entrance to conference/workshop
Optional afternoon and evening activities at the museum
An Event T-shirt
A Curiosity Kit

Besides the actual event, the location seems worth the trip by itself!

I've never taken the train beyond the City of Chicago, so riding Amtrak to St. Louis would be a lot of fun too. Carpooling is another option.

Looks like a kid-friendly event. Kids (12 and under) get a discount.

    Our hotel couldn't give us a second night for tonight. Does anyone have carpool space for 2 to Chicago? Or any advice on lodging? Cheapest near room is $400. Don't have car because we came on Amtrak. Thanks!

    If you don't find a ride, the train thing is pretty handy...we did that for our last scouting mission. There are cabs right at the train station to get you to your hotel or the conference. Depending on where you're staying, the train station may even be walking distance.

    Im looking for somebody with some extra space in their car, and will contribute to gas. Also could go the train route but since i dont know St. Louis prefer to go with somebody that knows their way around. Please let me know if interested to talk about options! Thanks

    Anyone with spare time and interested in Native American culture and history may want to pay a visit to Cahokia Mounds, just outside St. Louis (actually, East St. Louis):

    I still have some rooms available for $69 a night plus tax. Includes free wifi, but it's $10 a night to park. Marriott at the St. Louis Airport. Please contact me directly, not the hotel: [masked]. Thanks!
