City Museum St. Louis - Take 4 - the Roof

Ahhh....City Museum.  If you missed my previous posts on City Museum you must read them here:  TAKE 1   and here: TAKE 2 and here: TAKE 3    It will explain this crazy place!!!!

We began our day on the roof so we could beat as much of the heat as possible.  As always....this place is so cool I can't even explain it!    Here is one view of the bus and elephant and fun climbing things!!!

This is a photo of one of those climbing items.  I took it from across the roof.  Kennedy and Jeff are playing inside!





This amazing tube and slide - well, just look at it!  The top half is where you climb up to the top.  Once at the top (by the enormous praying mantiss) you slide into the underneath part and slide back down!!

Here are Quinn and Daddy at the beginning of the climb.  Kennedy was already WAY ahead!  Poor Jeff climbed with Quinn to the very top - he had to hunch way down.  Half way up Quinn was over it...she would have liked to get down I think!  So Jeff had to encourage her the rest of the way up!  Jeff and Kennedy went down the slide, but not Quinn!
Kennedy just about to go down the slide....
...here is she is 3/4 of the way down!!
This is yet another slide.  But first you must climb up using a rope!

Next we have the huge dome.  They have hung a rope from it, painted a large circle on the floor and just let people swing all day!

There is also a Ferris Wheel on the roof!  All four of us rode it!  Quinn hid her face most of the ride but didn't make a peep!  At 10pm that night Kennedy and Jeff went back and rode it again!!

Now I bring you a few shots of the outdoor fun!  These are at the entrance of the museum and it is called MonstroCity.   There are 2 old planes you can climb into and through, tons of cages and tunnels, a few slides, a tree house,  2 ball pits, part of a fire truck, and 2 stone turrets!  We didn't get many photos here because it was getting hot and there aren't good place to snap photos.  Below is Kennedy and myself climbing around!
 Quinn loved the ball pit!  The museum has one for kids 6 and under and one for older kids.  That was wonderful for her!




Hope I persuaded you to check out City Museum next time you are in St. Louis!  I am sure we will!
