City Museum.

City Museum
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. Report... [07/29/2012]

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.

Ferris wheel on the roof.

City Museum

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.

Sadly, the City Museum's main creative influence, Bob Cassily, died in September 2011. The museum is still wonderful. They've just added new tunnels on two floors, and the thrift store upstairs is expensive but worth a look. Mr. Cassily died while working on a new outdoor park north of downtown St. Louis. There is no word on whether his park will ever open.

We were eagerly awaiting the completion of Bob's project, "Cement World," when we read of his passing. A great loss to everyone.
