St. Louis City Museum


 If you’ve never been to the St. Louis City Museum and you find yourself in the area by all means go. Especially if you have children. There are tons of interactive things to do.

As much as I enjoy junk I could wander through their displays for hours.  Much of the displays are recycled architectural pieces or repurposed steel and iron.
  
  
Even the functional stairways are works of art.

The casing of these elevator doors with engine heads caught my eye.

 I don’t know that I’ve ever seen so many different things used together to form such an incredible exhibit.

 There were also displays of items that have been dug from privies, wells, and cisterns of St. Louis.    

I have only scratched the surface of what is there to see. It is certainly a mix of funky and different.

The ticket prices aren’t bad at $12 for our group rates. Not sure what single tickets are.  There are gift shops and concessions but I wasn’t overwhelmed by a feeling of someone trying to separate me from my money. There is even very affordable parking close by.
