The City Museum in Saint Louis, MO is a fascinating place. 

The museum is sort of like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory except that it’s accessible to all. The 12 story, 600,000 square foot warehouse is a child’s dream, with a ten-story slide, rooftop Ferris wheel, taxidermy wing, and the biggest jungle gym ever created. For adults, it makes you want to be twelve years old again. If that doesn’t work for you, there are also several bars on the premises. 

This eccentric place is the vision of artist Bob Cassilly and is constantly being updated and transformed.

“City Museum makes you want to know,” says Cassilly. “The point is not to learn every fact, but to say, ‘Wow, that’s wonderful.’ And if it’s wonderful, it’s worth preserving.”
