Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge.

This was a wonderful experience. The kids loved it. It was a quick afternoon stop and we could have stayed longer. Would do it again.

It doesn’t look like much from the outside but completely blew our minds once inside. Caves and slides everywhere. Food available in various places and well as drinks for the adults. This place is HUGE with a lot to do and see so I highly...More

This. Place. Is. FANTASTIC. I recommend going with an open mind, an active imagination, and a willingness to experiment with different methods of locomotion. I suspect this venue would be much less exciting for those not in reasonably good physical condition, as I found myself...More

We had heard about this place from friends but you cannot really understand what it is like until you go. We got there around 6 P.M. but it is open late which was nice. We rushed through almost everything but could have definitely used more...More

This artist designed space is part art installation, part amusement park. Entirely created from recycled architectural artifacts and industrial rejects, it is a mysterious, exhilarating, frightening, humorous, fun house. Kids and adventurous adults love it. Be prepared for a loud experience, but be prepared to...More

I can’t describe how much I enjoy the city museum, and I make sure to return every time I’m in town and introducing it to as many friends as possible. Four floors of jungle gym for grown-ups and kids of all ages, i’ve seen nothing...More

So much to see, do, and explore! More than you can absorb in a day. We are exhausted ... in a good way!

We do have stairs and if you set meeting points with your kids you can keep from climbing.
