Yeah, Another update, it's still day 5 of the trip and it's time for...

City Museum (in St. Louis)

This place was amazing and like nothing i had ever seen in the US. Despite walking around with a camera bag all the time and not doing slides and other random (weird and scary) things i had a blast.

Here's a lot of pictures which should give you an idea of the place and the fun we had. I'm pretty sure i still missed a gazillion things that were there but i do hope you can appreciate this "view" of one of the most crazy things in the US.

Here goes "nothing" ;)

When I look at those photos all I can think to myself is "confusion!" I really think this is one of those places where no photos or video can really do it justice. It's so hard to describe the confusion, insanity, immersion, and everything that City Museum is unless you go there.

I'm sure there are areas and things that I missed, but at the same time, I saw so much that I can't even remember it all!

It was a great time at City Museum, probably one of my top 5 favorite TPR moments of all time!

I can't believe how much stuff I did not see when I went to the City Museum. I could be because we went at night and they really dim the lights throughout the place. The caves were pitch black scary for sure. I guess I simply need to go back.

City Museum is easily the most screwed up yet awesome place I have ever seen. And Robb is right, pictures/videos don't really do it justice. It's really something you have to experience for yourself. There are so many random little things everywhere I'm sure you could visit multiple times and still find new stuff. I never even made it up to the roof (though since it was like 115 degrees outside, I wasn't in a particular hurry to get there!). City Museum is amazing, and I hope to visit again some day.

For those of you interested in the back story of City Museum, the Wiki actually seems very good:
