2015 Transworld Review: St. Louis City Museum
On Friday night, we stopped by the St. Louis City Museum. Let me tell you… This isn’t your typical museum. In fact, I’m not sure that the word “museum” describes what this place actually is. It is more like a crazy playground with multi-level passages that go in every direction. Some of the crawl-spaces are too small for larger adults to fit through, so just keep that in mind when you visit. I would also suggest bringing knee pads. Crawling on welded steel tubes isn’t very comfortable and you may end up with a few bruises before the day is done.
One of my favorite features of the museum is the five story spiral slide. The view from the catwalk on the top floor can be a bit intimidating, but don’t let that scare you off. The slide is a blast! Be sure to try it at least once.
Another one of my favorites was the outdoor playground. Emerging from the building at various levels are large tubular structures fashioned from welded rebar. It is kind of like a maze made of human-sized hamster tubes. Crawling through these structures at more than thirty feet above ground level is definitely exhilarating, to say the least!
I highly recommend checking this place out, if you visit St. Louis. It is fun for both kids and adults.
