The City Museum: Cabin Inn

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by monkeyrob on July 27, 2006

City Museum: take a kid or be a kid again. A children's museum that is also a late-night place for adults to enjoy with a brew: it's a children's museum, it has a liquor license, go figure! To find this amazing nightspot, look for the old warehouse with a yellow school bus on top. Really--you can't miss it.

The Cabin Inn is just that, a cabin. Tucked into the side of the activity-filled Museum, the Cabin Inn is a quaint place to get a drink and relax outside. Yes, most of the seating is outside, but don't worry. There are huge fire pits everywhere, so it's easy to keep warm, even in the winter. Drinks are simple and cheap. I usually go for a pint of Schlafly's.

The real fun is the museum that stays open late on the weekends. Explore caves, slides (lots of them), and climbing areas in a mix of indoor and outdoor mazes. It's great for exploring, laughing, and having a good time. When you get tired, have a drink. Then go back for more! You must see it to believe it. No review, picture, or website can do it justice. While in STL, you must go.
