    My wife and I came on a date night in St. Louis, and we had a blast! Definitely going to bring our (future) kids here. Not sure if the extra $$ is worth it for the roof, but it is fun for the slides.

    One of the best places to visit downtown, whether you're a kid or adult. There's something for everyone, especially if you don't mind crawling around, going down 10 story slides, etc. Always great fun

    Could not have loved this place more! Tip: If you're only planning on a couple hours, meter parking nearby will save you some $. Def bring comfy clothes and shoes and sunscreen for the outdoor spaces.

    The most unique museum you'll ever visit! Ride the Ferris wheel on the roof then grab a drink. Jump in the ball pit after you've gone down the 5 story slide. Great toddler area.
  • Matthew H.
    Amazing place to take the kids and play at. So many nooks and crannies to crawl into and under. You have to climb up to the airplane outside and the roof is a must see.

    At the City Museum in St. Louis, it's all about play. Wear closed-toed shoes and enjoy two 10-story slides, a circus, funhouse, playground and architecture made of fascinating salvaged objects.

    This is such a fun place created from salvaged architecture and industrial pieces. It's a treat for the eyes. There are labyrinths, slides several stories high, a rooftop amusement park, & aquarium.

    I've been coming here for years and I never get bored with it. Wear old cloths that you don't care about. Bring a childhood sense of wonder and don't be afraid to challenge yourself. But just have fun

    The City Museum has moved up to the top of my list museums to visit. It has everything! Adults, you're in for a workout! I would suggest bringing water to hydrate, you will need it.
  • Tori S.
    my friends and I really liked the city museum. Though you should definitely be dressed for climbing and crawling. Knee caps would be awesome to bring. We were doing so much we were sore and bruised.

    It's a $12 ticket + $5 for rooftop access. It was worth the extra money to get out on the roof. Awesome view! Also, make sure you go down the 10 story slide!

    Pay the extra few dollars for the roof ticket. The view from the Ferris wheel is unparalleled! The world aquarium is also well worth the ticket... Do it all, it's money very well spent!

    Get here early and go outside and beat the STL heat. The line for the big slide inside the west wall can be long at times. Keep an eye on it and hop in when you can.

    Awesome for all ages. (I personally wouldn't bring kids too young to understand basic safety, though.) Bring a flashlight and bandaids. You might scrape or bump yourself, but you'll still have fun.

    If you don't like to play then this is not the place for you. BUT if you like to play and have fun and be a kid, this is the coolest place on earth. I've never been anywhere more awesome than this.

    Consider visiting on a Fri or Sat night. They are open until 1 AM, have a bar inside for adult refreshments and live music. And you won't have to dodge a see of small kids everywhere you go.

    Although only a couple options, better atmosphere and food than mezzanine at Beatnik Bob's. Upstairs tucked away across from circus and by train. Also, good espresso and local chocolate.

    Do the massive slide. I think it's 7 stories, maybe higher. The walk to the top is actually just as much if not more of an adventure. Hold on!
