“Live life fully while you’re here. Have fun, be crazy, be wierd” Anthony Robbins
I’ve often been told I’m a little odd. I like to think it’s part of my natural attraction, but it may just be my inner child, or perhaps my inner gnome . Either way, in line with that particular slant to my personality I like to seek out odd things to do, just for the fun of it. You see, doing unusual things really can be fun, especially when you stretch yourself a little. So, driving into St Louis I decided to find the oddest thing to do, and that I did when I came across City Museum.
This wacky place is in the centre of town and is an eclectic mix of old history pieces and architectural collections surrounded by a psychedelic playground. The museum was designed by artist Bob Cassilly and everything in it is made to be climbed, touched, and experienced. Rooms are filled with slides, life-sized slinkys and secret climbing tunnels surrounded by unique exhibits such as the “Puking Pig”, the “Vault Room” (containing a vault from the 1800′s), and the head of a life-size Bowhead Whale. Sprinkled in for fun are a few historical artifacts such as a collection of shoelace machines from the 1890′s, a 1923 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, an exhibit of insects, and vintage opera posters. And to top it all off, on the 4th floor is one of St Louis’ largest 2nd-hand clothing stores.
It’s all quite nuts and the whole lot of it is sprawls over 600,000 feet of space and 4 levels, including an outdoor area. You could literally spend hours discovering new things in here. The kids who go have a blast, and the adults who participate seem to have even more fun. I crept through a bunch of tunnels, wound my way down a giant slinky, slipped on the slides and tried on ridiculous outfits in the 2nd-hand store. A thoroughly weird and useful outing.
