St. Louis City Museum eschews the formality that normally pervades such institutions in favor of a fun approach to learning. The 600,000 square foot museum features a children's playhouse, artistic sculptures and an intellectual institution.
Built from discarded material that was reclaimed from the city dumps, the museum has an unorthodox history. Among the materials used in its construction are old chimneys, wrecked planes and construction cranes. St. Louis City Museum is an establishment like no other.
The Enchanted Caves, one of the most popular museum attractions, are located inside the conveyer tunnel of what used to be a shoe factory. A selection of enchanting sculptures from local artists is located here.
Kids, meanwhile, will enjoy the MonstroCity exhibit. This unique children's play area has been carefully sculpted out of two light aircraft, a fire engine and other waste material. Kids will love climbing all over this interactive sculpture and enjoying the view from the top.
Visitors seeking hotels near St. Louis City Museum will find the Millennium Hotel St. Louis to be a fine proposition.
