I've been to the Magic House many, many times, including when it was just a little house years ago. It's amazing! There is so much to do and see, you'll be there all day. I would say younger than 2 probably will be a little overwhelmed and possibly trampled, even in the little area. Pretty much every time I go,... More

We recently visited The Magic House with our grandchildren ages 2 and 4. We were totally entertained for over 4 hours. We only left because the adults were exhausted. There are lots of educational and physical things to do for children, especially young children who are frequently bored at museums. Sand, water, play areas, construction, grocery shopping, auto mechanics, and... More

We've been here several times, I'm convinced that I may never see everything there! The kids love it! Probably best for kids under 10, although I've seen older kids there. Huge venue, unique, and soooo much to do! You have to see it to believe it!

Be prepared to spend the whole day here. There is so much fun stuff to do and experience. The kids did not want to leave. Gown ups will feel like a kid again. The meals are reasonable also.

If you haven't been to the Magic House recently - then you are in for a huge treat. Over the years, they have expanded, improved and made even more fun. There's an area for babies and toddlers - but the place really appeals to age 3 to 15 or older. The special area for the 3 to 8 year old... More

The magic house is a great family activity that is like a science museum, with great activities that kids will love to explore. While the magic house is really just activities that kids can do, there isn't much for parents and guardians to do with the kids like at the City Museum, kids will explore, play and learn. A few...

I really love this place. I took my 5 year old and he didn't want to leave. It's a fun and learning experience here.

This museum was great. There was so much to see and do. We were there several hours and could've stayed longer. My son was 4 and able to do everything except for one slide you had to be 5 years old.
