2. Marvel At the Strange and Unusual City Museum

St. Louis is home to a lot of museums, but one of the strangest can be found in the city's Loft District. What was once the International Shoe Building is now one of the strangest and yet most unique museums in the country. What City Museum essentially is, is an urban playground founded around the idea that cities are as many pieces of art as those held inside of them. It's a whimsical day trip and one that all the family will enjoy. As well as there being abandoned planes that have been turned into jungle gyms and the school bus teetering precariously over the top of the building, there's also a working Ferris wheel and an aquarium.
