St. Louis’ City Museum not just for kids
Intertwining tree branches, dark damp caves and a metal jungle of scrap parts, including a school bus and two airplanes, take shape at St. Louis’ City Museum to create a playground that can be intimidating to an adult visitor, especially with hundreds of youngsters scurrying through tiny passageways and climbing like chimps high above the city streets.
The City Museum, a vision of the internationally acclaimed sculptor Bob Cassilly, was built in 1997. Cassilly and his crew create the attractions in the museum from reclaimed building materials no further than the city’s municipal borders and donated souvenirs. The City Museum now is opening the minds of approximately 2,200 visitors daily.
