This drone video takes you on a tour of the City Museum, which was opened in St. Louis, MO in October of 1997.
The museum was created by the artist Bob Cassilly. Cassilly converted a 10-story, 600,000 square foot warehouse that previously housed a shoe company into the magical twisting and turning world you see in the video, with the goal of creating a “city within a city.”
Working with a group of artists that included welders, painters, and sculptors, Cassilly built the museum over several years, starting in 1993 and finally opening it in 1997.
Over that entire time the group—which became known as the Cassilly Crew—worked in secret, which meant that when the museum finally opened it was the first time anyone had seen what they’d been building for all those years.
