We are taking FRIGHTS and FUN to a new level this October at City Museum! Featuring five unique experiences for all ages every Friday-Sunday in October. Plus a host of other special events happening each week. Guests are encouraged to dress their Halloween best but please no full face masks and no capes, for your own safety.
Séance at the Museum
Strange, unexplained things have been happening at 750 N. 16th Street long before the building housed City Museum. Originally built as a shoe warehouse in year 1930, the 600,000 square foot museum is rumored to have many unsettled spirits woven into the tapestry of the building itself. We believe these spirits have something to tell us.
Now for the first time in history, we have invited the world’s most sought-after Medium to lead a séance at City Museum in St. Louis, Missouri. Join Dr. Fochsister every weekend in October as they take us beyond the veil to discover what lurks in the dark passages, twists, and tunnels of this building.
WARNING: Contrary to popular belief, a séance is not a game and not to be taken lightly. The conjuring of spirits should only be led by a true Medium with pure intentions and a great deal of expertise. Experience recommended for ages 12+. Does include thrill elements and may be too intense for some guests. Once you enter, you must remain until the séance is complete.
The Lady Beast
Balanced atop thin necked champagne bottles, LadyBEAST walks and dances across their narrow uncorked openings. Leaving her audiences breathless with her seemingly effortless tiptoe, the feats of illusion and magic don’t stop there.
She also specializes in Houdini-style performances, where her escape artistry puts crowds on the edges of their seats. In fact, back in 2018, she became the first woman to escape a straitjacket all while hanging from her ankles dangling from a hot air balloon! The balloon hoisted her nearly 100 feet in the air—10 stories high—and after escaping, she hung by her elbow and descended safely to the ground with no safety harness.
There’s no telling what unbelievable feat she will conquer next, but we certainly are eager to find out! Join LadyBEAST on the rooftop of City Museum as she performs one of her greatest escapes yet! Will she escape from her bondage in time to make it to safety? Only time will tell!
Appropriate for all ages.
