City Museum and Circus Debut

Last November on our way to spend Thanksgiving with family in Illinois, we decided to spend a day in St Louis.    We went to the City Museum.   We had a blast.  If you are ever in the St Louis area and have some time to kill, you should check this place out.

It's hard to describe the City Museum because it's not like any museum I've ever been to.  It's more like a huge playhouse.   My kids absolutely loved it.   We went on a weekend night when it stays open until midnight.  After 9 or 10pm, they turn off the lights in many of the areas and you can explore the building with flashlights.   We stayed until probably 11pm.   Among many other things, the museum has a huge outdoor metal sculpture you can climb around on, a maze of caves indoors you can explore, a 10 story slide, a ferris wheel on the roof, an indoor skate park, an adult sized hamster wheel, the worlds largest pencil, the world's largest underwear, and an old pipe organ that you can play.

The maze of metal sculptures you can climb on.

Notice the bus on the roof?  Yeah, you could sit in the driver's seat.

On the hamster wheel.

Exploring!

The world's largest underwear.
The museum also had a small one-man circus in a theater with about 100 people.  The absolute highlight of our time at the museum was my son getting picked to go on stage with the performer.   This was the finale of the show.  Enjoy.

LOVE the City Museum! We have family in St. Louis but we've only had the chance to go to the City Museum once. We'd love to go back. I love that it's just as much fun for adults as it is for kids.

That place looks cool. I was just there last year for their marathon, and we were trying to come up with places to visit. We ended up checking out the free St. Louis Zoo, and Forrest Park was neat too.
