One of the slides at City Museum is earning some national recognition for being unique but also functional.

The slide landed at number 7 on HouseBeautiful's list-- "9 of the World's Coolest Slides You Can Actually Ride". The list features unique slides that "will make you feel like a little kid again."

City Museum, which opened in the former International Shoe Factory, is part playground, part art sculpture, and it's all built out of unique, found objects.

The HouseBeautiful's profile of the City Museum slide highlights the fact that the 10-story spiral slide was converted from the factory's old shoe chutes.
