In downtown St. Louis, located just a few blocks from the America’s Center Convention Complex, is a true artistic marvel. With secret caves and passageways, a small circus, an architectural museum, a museum of oddities, and plenty of slides, City Museum is a recycler’s paradise with many of the exhibits constructed from products that were made for other uses. Fittingly, the museum itself has been repurposed: It’s housed in the former International Shoe Company building.

It’s a wacky place where a school bus hangs off the roof and airplane parts appear to fly over the parking lot in the ever-expanding playground called MonstroCity. Also on the roof are a Ferris wheel, slides — including a three-story slide on top of the 10-story building — fountains, as well as places to climb, hop, skip, jump, and relax.

City Museum is constantly changing and expanding so that rarely are two visits ever the same. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed — with activities to delight both kids and the inner child in all of us.

All of which makes it an exciting and memorable venue for special events. The City Museum event staff provides flexible rental scenarios for parties of almost any size, including the option to rent the entire museum. The staff works closely with planners to provide an amazing experience for all attendees.
