To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else~Dickinson
Silver Dollar City, Mark Twain's Hannibal, St. Louis Zoo and Arch... so many great places in MO to check out. Have fun on your trip!
St. Louis MUST see: The City Museum!! Your kids will LOVE IT!!!CityMuseum.org-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-Welcome to CITY MUSEUM, where the imagination runs wild!Housed in the 600,000 square-foot former International Shoe Company, the museum is an eclectic mixture of children's playground, funhouse, surrealistic pavilion, and architectural marvel made out of unique, found objects. The brainchild of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly, a classically trained sculptor and serial entrepreneur, the museum opened for visitors in 1997 to the riotous approval of young and old alike.Cassilly and his longtime crew of 20 artisans have constructed the museum from the very stuff of the city; and, as a result, it has urban roots deeper than any other institutions'. Reaching no farther than municipal borders for its reclaimed building materials, CITY MUSEUM boasts features such as old chimneys, salvaged bridges, construction cranes, miles of tile, and even two abandoned planes!"CITY MUSEUM makes you want to know," says Cassilly. "The point is not to learn every fact, but to say, 'Wow, that's wonderful.' And if it's wonderful, it's worth preserving."
Aw, Diana beat me to it. Just yesterday, some of us were talking about how cool City Museum is. It's on our must-see list for whichever year we take the road trip with the boys back east to see DC.
