City Museum of Illinois is housed in a six hundred thousand square foot building. It is a classic blend of kids playground, funhouse, 20th century style art galleries and unique architectures made out of interesting objects. Bob Cassilly is the founder of the museum and it opened the door for the visitors in 1997.
As mentioned before the place is a combination of different types of attractions. One of these attractions is Enchanted caves. The crafty and skilful design allows visitors to walk, climb and crawl through the caves.
In the second floor they have the World Aquarium. It is 13,500 square feet and you get to see 10,000 or more creatures in there.
If you like something bit more interactive, you have Art City. Here you can create your own art or just enjoy the demonstration of the professionals.
There are too many interesting items to write about in a small space. You have to visit the place to feel the excitement.
