City Museum: Shoe Factory Transformed into the Ultimate Urban Playground
Housed in the previous home of the 10-story International Shoe Company, the sprawling 600,000 square-foot City Museum in St. Louis is conceivably a definitive urban play area ever developed.The museum is the brainchild of artist and sculptor Bob Cassilly who opened the space in 1997 after years of renovation and construction.
So what would you be able to discover at the City Museum? What about a high as can be wilderness rec center making utilization of two repurposed planes, two towering 10-story slides and various multi-floor slides, a housetop Ferris haggle cantilevered school transport that sticks out from the rooftop, underground surrenders, a channel organ, several feet of passages that navigate from floor to floor, an aquarium, ball pits, a shoe trim manufacturing plant, a bazaar expressions office, eateries, and even a bar… on the grounds that why not?
On my first visit a year ago our family barely left the historical center for two days. It is the finished absolute opposite to marketed amusement parks like Disneyland.
