USA Today’s ‘10Best’ poll names City Museum one of America’s Best Children’s Museums, Immersive Art Experiences
For the second time in two years, USA Today’s ‘10Best’ recognizes City Museum as one of America’s Best Children’s Museums. This year, they’ve also been named one of the country’s Best Immersive Art Experiences. Now, museum-goers from coast-to-coast will decide which attractions take the top spots through a public vote.
ST. LOUIS – One of St. Louis’ most treasured institutions is back in the national news for all the right reasons. City Museum has been named best in America in two USA Today’s ‘10Best’ poll categories: Best Children’s Museum and Best Immersive Art Experience.
Now, it’s up to museum-goers from all over the country to decide whether they will take the top spots. Voting is currently open for both categories.
General Manager Rick Erwin said the staff and crew lit up when they received the news. “We’re thrilled to be in the running for two different categories. It was a surprise. Between this and the increase in attendance we’ve seen over Spring Break, things almost feel normal,” he shared. Erwin ended with a love note to locals, “We wouldn’t have survived the pandemic if it weren’t for locals coming back out to support us. People who hadn’t visited in years were buying memberships just to help us keep the doors open. Now we see folks asking their friends to vote for us, unprovoked. We notice. It means a lot.”
This is not the first time the Downtown St. Louis institution has been in the running. In 2020, City Museum came in second place for Best Children’s Museum out of 20 attractions, narrowly trailing the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
