The City Museum in St. Louis

The City Museum in St. Louis is the most amazing place! It's not really a museum, it's an adventure! It's a converted old warehouse with something to see every which way you look. The kids LOVE it and so do I. There is so much art built into every surface. The mosaics alone are to die for. On weekends, it turns into a nightclub. You must visit if you get the chance!

Texture & Pattern are everywhere!

You can climb up the tower to the planes

Climbing up to the first plane. See that bus? We went in it!

Gorgeous ground floor. There are climbing tubes in the ceiling, the walls, & under the floor.

Looking down at the ground floor. See the slide at the top?

Ferris wheel on the roof.
Inside the bus that hangs off of the edge, 10 stories up. Gulp.

Rooftop fountain.
There were two slides on the roof.
