Please note the NEW date and time!!!
Basically this place is a playground for adults and kids alike - at your own risk! It's a St. Louis icon and it's awesome.
If we get more than 15 people, there is a group rate available. Otherwise:
10.00 + tax
5.00 + tax to add the roof ($15 total)
Scheduled for late night to avoid the majority of kids and to take advantage of the roof. (There's a Ferris Wheel!)
From their website:
Housed in the 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company, the museum is an eclectic mixture of children’s playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects. The brainchild of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly, a classically trained sculptor and serial entrepreneur, the museum opened for visitors in 1997 to the riotous approval of young and old alike.
Cassilly and his longtime crew of 20 artisans have constructed the museum from the very stuff of the city; and, as a result, it has urban roots deeper than any other institutions’. Reaching no farther than municipal borders for its reclaimed building materials, City Museum boasts features such as old chimneys, salvaged bridges, construction cranes, miles of tile, and even two abandoned planes!
