This marvelously unique living sculpture of a museum opened to the public in 1997.
The city museum was designed by internationally acclaimed and classically trained sculptor and serial entrepreneur,Bob Cassilly.
According to the museum’s website it is housed in the 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company.
The museum is an eclectic mixture of children’s playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects.”
I would recommend a trip to the city museum to anyone who feels like they might need some climbing, sliding, discovering, or laughing. With kids or without this is a super fun and one-of-a-kind sight to see.
It is definitely the number one thing to experience in Saint Louis. Not only is it all these things, it is also extremely affordable ($12.00 ages 3 years and up or $10.00 after 5pm Fridays & Saturdays.)
