About City Museum

Expect the unexpected. City Museum is a hundred-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis in which artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles.  There are secret passages and grand galleries. Playgrounds and ball pits. A circus and a train. A rooftop school bus and a Ferris wheel.

Always Building

City Museum is not done, and it won't ever be. We are always building.  None of our construction is behind closed doors. You can see the work and installation in progress. From mosaics to jungles of rebar, art happens right in front of you. You will find something different every time you come.
