You know how the tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory was kind of dangerous?

Kids disappeared (for a while, anyway).

They were OK,  but still. There are times where there’s a nervous question among the group: “Is this fun?”

The answer: Of course. But they weren’t just going to *give* you the fun. You had to work for it.

That’s pretty much what’s going on at the City Museum in St. Louis.

It’s art you can climb through. It’s a giant display you’re a part of.

It’s getting lost as a matter of principle.

The word “museum” is definitely the wrong way to describe it.

You’ll have to go there to find the right one.
