Haha, I love the City Museum.

 

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that they even have an aquarium on the 2nd floor of the museum and there's a shark tank and they have a small (see-through) tube that you can crawl through to see the sharks under the water one on one.

 

Their Sting rays are pretty freaky though because they frequently jump out of the water.

You have got to be kidding!! The museum is a frickin' amusement park...SF is the imitator, if I ever got my kids to that place they would probably have to drag me out kickin' and screamin'!

Oh, I love St. Louis. I just went back to my hometown (I grew up in St. Peters) just last week, to visit my sister. Couldn't squeeze in Six Flags, but we did go to the Zoo and Missouri Botanical Gardens (Shaw's Garden), both of which are widely regarded as among the finest in the country. We also did some other things in Forest Park, as well as of course the Arch, and the one thing that must be visited on any St. Louis trip, Ted Drewes.

 

^And yes, FLIPDUDE, the City Museum IS a totally random place. Skilled artists have transformed it from a shoe factory into what it is now. Everything in it is junk that has been recycled and made into everything from stairway bannisters to slides. Click here to visit the City Museum website. It really does have some museum in it, as in the architectural hall which has relics from St. Louis buildings gone past, but most of the place is like a playground for everyone. The Enchanted Caves was the highlight for me. Crawling around exploring wonderful sculpture is just plain fun. They have since added on the shoe slides and more, so I must go to the City Museum again the next time we visit.

Protesting scientology with a longcat?

 

The City Museum looks so awesome! But you'd get tired after a few hours there.

The City Museum is one of the best places on earth!! I love the caves. And the aquarium is small, but cool. I love the crawl tunnel through the shark tank. I'm surprised TPR hasn't visited there before, but I'm sure there will be a visit soon.

Sorry, I should have worded it differently. The shoe slides have always been there, but it's just recently that they reworked that area in the building, and made it so guests could play in there. If you look at dj snow's pictures of the shoe slides, they have added the bars across the top to make sure no one falls out! That would be a nasty plunge!

ever since we discovered City Museum on a family trip 5 years ago, we haven't been able to last a year without revisiting, and it's four hours away from us! I've been making Six Flags and City Museum a yearly trip for our youth group, and if you search "Platypus Fun City Museum" you can see a video we made a couple years back of it.

 

The coolest thing about City Museum is that it is ALWAYS CHANGING! Every time you go back there are new caves to explore, bigger and bigger slides, and more stuff to hurt yourself on (my brother-in-law recently broke his arm in the skateless park.)

 

They are currently working on a junkyard-themed waterpark on the roof that looks crazy. I can't believe they can get insurance for the place, but it is very reasonably priced and very kind to groups.

A junkyard themed waterpark?! That is so... COOL!!!

 

Gotta admire whoever is behidn that place!

 

And the fact that some of the playplace things there are made from recycled material even makes it awsomer

LOL! As soon as I saw the V for Vendetta-looking masks I knew it had to be Anonymous... it's about the only hilariously random thing that wasn't in the TR yet!

^ I can say that I didn't think I'd be able to do the slinky between floors, but once I got through it, it felt like the greatest accomplishment ever. I asked some of the attendants there and they said there has never been anyone stuck, but that could mean they're due...

I'm not much for doing TRs, but here's a Flickr set from my visit to the City Museum this past Saturday.

I don't post here much, so hopefully this is Kosher...

 

BTW, this was my second visit. LOVED it! Thanks to this most excellent TR, it gave me the inspiration to take my visiting nieces. Needless to say, they LOVED it.
