What is City Museum St. Louis?

Here, you can let your imagination run wild. This museum is unlike any other, and it’s a great place to play and enjoy for people of all ages. The museum is housed in a 600,000-square-foot building that’s got a unique mix of children’s playgrounds, surreal pavilions, fun houses, and architectural wonders.

Everyone feels young at heart when they play and explore in a maze of caves, tunnels, perches, and even a human hamster wheel. Walk past the World’s Largest Pencil, ride the four-story Ferris wheel on the roof, check out the 20-foot-tall metal praying mantis, and play in the ball put.

City Museum was started by artist Bob Cassilly, and it opened in 1997. Cassilly and 20 artisans have crafted the museum from items and materials found around St. Louis, including salvaged bridges, tile, an abandoned plane or two, old chimneys, construction cranes, and more.

Looking for something that’s both fun and educational? Try the St. Louis Science Center.
