St Louis: City Museum General Admission Ticket

1. St Louis: City Museum General Admission Ticket

Reserve your general admission ticket to the City Museum located in a historic warehouse in downtown St. Louis. Discover interactive and creative exhibits in which artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, climbers, bridges, and castles. City Museum is filled with weirdly wonderful spaces to explore. Discover the Slides, the City Museum is built around the old spiral chutes of the shoe warehouse that it once was. Inspired by the utility of gravity, the artists have not missed the opportunity to include a slide in nearly every installation.  Expereince the Caves, purportedly man-made chambers wind through the heart of the City Museum past sculptures of mythical creatures and a 1925 Wurlitzer organ. Enjoy the Treehouse + Tunnels where giant tree trunks and slides spread up through the second and third floors and burrowed into tunnels underneath the museum. Take in the Circus Harmony, a non-profit circus organization using juggling, acrobatics, magic and more to motivate social change. Admire MonstroCity, an outdoor sculpture of flotsam and repurposed technology including climbers, airplanes, castles, bridges, ball pits and fire engines. Soak up Skateless Park, a collection of slides and ramps built around the World’s Largest Working Pencil. Wander through endless collections, including George Dehil’s collection of taxidermy butterflies, moths and insects, thousands of art slides from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and historic architectural remnants from cities near and far.  Have the chance to catch a ride on the miniature train that gives kids a ride into tunnels and through the solar system. Excite the kids with Toddler Town where smaller versions of slides and climbers give families a place made just for visitors age 6 and under.

Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our trolly tour of St. Louis. The driver was very knowledgable and personable. He shared lots of interesting information and was very responsive to our questions. He was ready to start the tour on time and had us back at our pickup site at the agreed upon time. Our trolly was very clean and comfortable. Thank you.

Very interesting venue. The sweet spot would be for kids about five to twelve years of age. Booking was extremely easy through GetMyGuide. We parked for $15 in a building right next to venue.

Trolly took us from the riverboat casino downtown towards Forrest Park. Made a couple stops for some photo ops. Very knowledgeable guide and very friendly and helpful. 10/10 recommend.

the driver is knowledgeable about the city. About 90 minutes tour.

Enjoyed the sights and the driver/tour guide did excellent.
