The Unique Playground In Missouri Everyone Should Visit At Least Once
Playgrounds used to be the source of so much joy for us when we were kids. But now, as we grow too old and big for them, they just don’t seem to have as much importance. However, City Museum has completely changed that by creating an interactive fun house for both children and adults to enjoy.
In 1997, City Museum opened its doors to the public. The 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company was turned into an artistic playground that drew in both the young and old.
Internationally-acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly and his crew of 20 artisans created the museum using recycled objects found throughout St. Louis.
The museum features old chimneys, salvaged bridges, construction cranes, miles of tile, and even two abandoned planes.
To continue to marvel its guests, the museum is constantly being updated. In this photo, you'll see one artist painting the foot of a creature that will lead to the next slide.
The museum murals are completely hand-painted, as well.
The best thing about this museum is that it's completely interactive. So don't shy away from playing in that giant ball pit.
You can even take a ride on the ferris wheel that feautures gorgeous city skyline views.
If you're hungry, but don't want to leave the museum, don't sweat it. Just head over to Beatnik Bob's, the onsite cafe located at City Museum in the Museum of Mirth, Mystery and Mayhem.
Depending on the kind of day, you may even want a Bloody Mary.
One thing's for sure, spending a day at City Museum will be unlike anything else you've ever done.
