What better way to reward their accomplishments than whisking them out of town on a fantastic three-day St. Louis adventure?

City Museum- Kick-off your awesome three-day Grad Trip with a visit to an unbelievably cool place where imaginations run wild! Housed in a recycled 600,000 square foot shoe company, this ever-evolving “museum” is a wonderful, electric fusion of post-apocalyptic playground, midway funhouse, surrealistic tree house pavilion, and more than four stories of absolute architectural marvel created from ordinary, unique, and amazing found objects. The fabulous brainchild of internationally acclaimed artist Bob Cassilly, the City Museum opened for visitors in 1997 to the vigorous roar of approval of young and old, alike. “Grown” from the very stuff of the city, this beyond-awesome St. Louis institution springs from urban roots deeper than all others. Scavenging resources solely within municipal borders for its reclaimed materials and turning them into fantastic playthings and whimsical objects d’art, City Museum boasts fun features like cool salvaged bridges, archaic construction cranes, “actual miles” of tile, and two abandoned planes! The Museum affords visitors of all ages and opportunity to explore a re-purposed would be full of unbelievable interactive adventure! Creator Cassilly says: “City Museum makes you want to know. The point in not to learn every fast, but to say, “Wow, that’s wonderful. And if it’s wonderful, it’s worth preserving.”
