Our Take

The brainchild of an eccentric sculptor, this self-described "phantasmagorical wonderland" is a shoe warehouse turned "museum of cities" and was designed to engage kids and adults alike in art. Bring kneepads and a sense of adventure; you'll need it, since there are no maps to the ten-story slide, the world's largest underwear, the pinball collection, or any of the other wacky surprises hidden within.

Expect the unexpected. City Museum is a hundred-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis in which artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles. There are secret passages and grand galleries. Playgrounds and ball pits. A circus and a train. A rooftop school bus and a Ferris wheel.
