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 is my favorite place to bring visitors to in St. Louis. This isn't your regular boring museum where you have to keep quiet and read plaques the whole time. It's an entire up-cycled playground. This is a place to run, climb, crawl and explore....More

This is a museum like no other. It's located in an old downtown warehouse and covers several floors. There's interactive activities for all ages but mostly aimed at kids but don't get me wrong, adults will be astonished as if you were young again. Plan...More

Like no other hands on museum fun! There's lots of crawling and exploring so this place is best for elementary age through young teens. If you have a preschooler I suggest you find a friend or family that can crawl into all the tiny crevices...More

If you don't like big open spaces high up, you might want to skip this place. If you have kids that love to climb way up high, they will love it.

While some crawl spaces aren't too accommodating for full-sized people, the many stairs and slides made this so much fun!! The roof is a must-see- fascinating architecture and a beautiful ferris wheel ride! I recommend wearing comfy shoes and clothing that allows you to crawl,...More

I first visited this place when my kids were preteens. They are now in their 30's and still consider this their favorite visit in St. Louis. It is convenient to downtown, and everyone, young and old love it. Nothing like you have ever seen.

Friday evening will be the least crowded time of the holiday weekend. We do allow kids in after 5 pm, we just require them to be with an adult 18 years old or older.
