City Museum

We like to call this place a playground for adults! It’s a “museum” built in a former shoe factory, made out of materials found within municipal borders, creating a bit of a reclaimed funhouse! There are caves and slides, abandoned planes and busses, construction cranes, a collection of doorknobs, and so much more to explore- all without a map. Be sure to visit while you’re in town- and remember to wear closed toed shoes and pants that will sliiiiiiiidddddeeeee! www.citymuseum.org

 

 

Saint Louis Cardinals

Spend an afternoon or evening with the 2011 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Check out the group ticket pricing. Enjoy an urban travel experience. Take the Metro Link from the Shrewsbury Station just 4.17 miles from AMEN STL. Check the Metrolink Schedule to detemine when you should arrive to catch the train. Allow time to purchase tickets from the Kiosk or Ticket window. Be sure to “validate” your ticket at the little time stamp machines at the base of the platform. Metrolink is a fun and easy way to travel as a group, a great way to avoid pre and post game traffic jams! Busch Stadium has it’s own station, so it’s hard to get lost. Allow about 30 minutes travel from station to station.
