My son loves this place, and we go every few months. He never wants to leave, and I have to pull him from area to area. It's a neat place, a little pricey ($10 each 2 years & up, a lot if you have multiple kiddos and both parents--you can find buy one get one half off coupons online). It... More

A crowded but fun filled evening for free. Take advantage of the many activities the Magic House has to offer monthly. This place is wonderful because children can let their imagination run wild!

We love this place. It has never failed to thrill the little ones. Tons of fun. Lots of hands on things for them to do. I can't wait to take my grandkids when they're big enough to go.

We find ourselves taking our granddaughter here 2 or 3 times a month when she comes for extended visits. Plan to spend 3 or more hours here as its a Mecca of fun!

This is a great place for the young to explore, many science related exhibits all hands on, but mostly just a fun place to explore, located in a very large several floor house in Kirkwood.
