City Museum-Beatnik Bob's

Map & Directions 701 N 15th St
St. Louis, MO 63103


Riverfront Times' Description

Located on the third floor of the City Museum off of Washington Avenue, Beatnik Bob's pays tribute to the carnival midway with a collection of items compiled to represent the youthful subculture of the '50s. During its open hours, Beatnik Bob's functions as a snack shop with ice cream, soda and other assorted snacks. Dimly lit and glowing with neon lights, the City Museum's ode to an era features a photo booth, pinball machines, shelves full of books for browsing and other various assorted oddities to peruse. Funhouses and corn dogs galore await to explore -- just keep in mind that Bob's runs on a different schedule than the rest of the museum and regularly has an earlier closing time.

    Open till 1 AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Adults, take advantage of the opportunity to play around with a lower chance of trampling a 5 year old.

  • Amanda B. on 03/23/10

    Go to the caverns, and climb to the very top and go down the spiral-y slide.
