Less a museum than the World's Greatest PlayZone, with precarious places to climb and secret chutes to slide. Plus the World's Largest Underpants, the World's Largest Pencil, and Elvis Presley's travel trailer. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [07/29/2012]
Visitor Tips and News About City Museum
Circus Harmony - City Museum
Circus Harmony is on the third floor of the City Museum. Performances are at noon and 2 pm Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday shows are at 1 pm and 3 pm. The circus performances do not cost any extra on top of museum admission.[Mandy Crandell, 04/16/2017]
City Museum is a great playground for kids, but it's also a treasure trove of odd attractions. Some things you'll find include: a castle turret, a bus hanging off the roof, the World's Largest Tighty Whities, circus performers, slabs of architecture, tunnels galore, pinball machines, and the World's Largest Pencil. The World Aquarium is no longer at the museum, but the first floor does have a tank with native Missouri fish.[Mandy Crandell, 04/12/2017]
An absolute must! I was completely blown away by this "museum." While the jungle gym aspect is the highlight there are also some very interesting exhibits on the architecture of St. Louis. Also, spend the extra 5 dollars for roof access, it's worth it. Or if you are going on a date just pay for the roof and enjoy a cocktail and Ferris wheel ride with your date.[Andrew, 08/16/2013]
On Friday and Saturday nights, it stays open late. Adults can freely play and run around without worrying about trampling a small child. It is worth the extra $5 to get rooftop access. The view of the city from the ferris wheel on the roof can't be beat. Also, adult beverages server in the log cabin.[Brittany, 11/17/2012]
