family-adventure-saturday-at-city-museum-st-louis #busymomWeekends are always a hectic time for our household, but whenever the moment presents itself, I do my best to find ways to combine scheduled events with something fun.

 .

Case in point, my oldest son was scheduled to perform at City Museum St Louis a few Saturdays ago, and since all other family events had to be postponed due to a last-minute change in my husband’s schedule, I decided to make the most of our time at the Museum with the kids.

.

First up was taking in my son’s band performance. In the spirit of Halloween, they performed one of my all-time favorites:

After the performance was over, we were all set to head indoors for our Saturday adventure!

There are a ton of things to do at City Museum St Louis—both inside and out. It has many levels of activities—there’s even an operable ferris wheel on the rooftop!

 .

There is also a plane suspended in the air to explore as well as a school bus dangling off the edge of the roof, but we stayed away from those (for now)! 😀

One inside, the design is spectacular:

The ceiling of the museum–gorgeous!

As awesome as everything looks, my youngest was apprehensive at first! 🙂

We checked out some of the sculptures of creatures there

The youngest was a little afraid of some of the creatures! 🙂

And then, for the real adventure: exploring the caves and tunnels.

The tunnels started off bright, colorful…and suspended in the air throughout the museum!

…But then, we reached the ‘caves’ and other tunnels of the museum (this sign was waiting for us there–maybe we should have turned around!) 😀

It was super dark in the caves — Lady T said it reminded her of the movie National Treasure! LOL 🙂

We were beginning to wonder if we were ever going to make it out! LOL

We made it out — Yay! 😀

.

We all had a really great time—and we made it out of the day without any bumps or bruises (or in my case, aches and pains! LOL).  I love that the activities at City Museum St Louis are ones that parents can take part in and enjoy just as much (if not more) than the kids. I must admit that we don’t get a chance to visit there often, but when we do, it is always a memorable experience for everyone!
