City museum

Today we went to a city museum in St. Louis. First of all, it’s made out of an old building and recycled materials–like old pieces of smooth glass or non-sharp metal, sounds fun right? But it was actually one of the most fun places I have ever been to in my life! The indoor stuff was really cool. There were cement caves like a maze in the ground. There was also a huge wooden tree house like the caves, but in the air. Then we saw a funny magic show. But outside was the biggest and most recycled yet! You could climb around in the sky in old planes, towers and machinery, with walk/crawl ways between it all.


There was also a big ball arena that got pretty wild. But the roof of the building was definitely the best. There was a Ferris wheel and some slides (not the little ones either) and a pond you could skip across on rocks–my foot fell in! There was even a bus that you could go in that hung over the side of the building!

But the best part of the whole museum was the 40-foot slide. First, you had to climb up to the giant metal praying mantis, then you slid all the way down, you even went underground a little! The city museum was definitely the best part of my trip to St. Louis.

  1. Hello from the Lannin family! I can’t wait Lincoln and Lucy to this museum! I’m pretty sure it beats Normal’s Children’s Museum hands down!

  2. Hunter, that was a great review, I now want to add the City Museum to our Family Bucket List! You are a brave man; many of those places you described exploring sound rather scary.

    Trent, your video was an excellent depiction (though I am sure just scratched the surface) of the day you had. I appreciated the videos being broken up by photos so I didn’t get too nauseous but the videos definitely brought it to life!
