Continue to stay safe at home and discover fun activities for families courtesy of your favorite St. Louis attractions!

Over the past several weeks, St. Louis Attractions have stepped up their game to provide you and your family with virtual tours, downloadable activity sheets, music, curbside pickup (#STLTakeItOut) and so much more. View the list below for a variety of fun activities for families to enjoy!

How do you support attractions while at home? Share it with us on Facebook and Instagram!
  1. Check out Edwardsville Children’s Museum’s Facebook page to participate in Project Storytime and learn about purchasing one of their incredibly fun Learning Bundles (pro-tip: they restock on May 2nd!).
  2. In need of a field trip? Us too. The Eugene Field House Museum is offering virtual tours online right now! Choose your date, your time, pay the admission fee, and you are ready to tour!
  3. Another interesting tour to check off your list is the Virtual Museum Experience from the Economy Museum at The St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank. You can watch an online lesson and a few mini-tours as a part of this experience. You can also watch a full-length tour of the entire museum!
  4. Check out the Gateway Arch National Park’s Facebook page to watch videos from #NationalParkWeek as well as other fun videos, spotlights, and information. Follow along with the Gateway Arch’s Instagram page to see fun photos and videos too!
  5. Check out GoApe! USA’s Facebook page and Instagram page for fun contests, activities to download, videos, and more to get that adrenaline rush even at home!
  6. Even though the St. Louis Cardinals’ baseball season is currently on hold, that doesn’t mean you have to completely deprive yourself of all things baseball. Make sure you keep up with the Cardinals’ news during this downtime!
  7. Six Flags St. Louis keeps the fun rolling with downloadable activity sheets that they entire family can do together.
  8. The Old Spaghetti Factory recently reopened for #curbside pickup! In fact, you can get 15% off your first order when you order here. Enjoy a St. Louis favorite from the comfort of your own home!
  9. Got a sweet tooth? The St. Louis Union Station Soda Fountain posts shake recipes galore on their Facebook page and Instagram page so you can make some incredibly satisfying shakes from home (P.S. you may need some help finishing them)!
  10. Ballpark Village hosts a video series on their Facebook page and Instagram page called “Village Visits: Catching Up with Friends From Home.” This series interviews different people from singers, to restaurant operators, to baseball players!
