theodp writes “Despite the whiff of danger, or perhaps because of it, the WSJ reports that the City Museum is one of St. Louis’s most popular attractions. Housed in a 10-story brick building, the City Museum shows none of the restraint or quiet typical of most museums. It boasts a five-story jungle gym with two real-life jets kids can climb on, an enclosed Monster Slide that drops riders the length of three staircases, and a rooftop Ferris wheel. Sure, there are the occasional severed fingers and skull fractures, but museum founder Bob Cassilly contends that it is as safe as it can be without being a bore. ‘They [lawyers] are taking the fun out of life,’ says Cassilly, adding that ‘when you have millions of people do something, something’s going to happen no matter what you do.’”
