We went to the Magic House this past Sunday. We had a BLAST. There was so much more to do there than when we were kids. I have 2 kids age 5 and 2.5 years old. They both had so much fun. They didnt want to leave. The only regret we had was not allowing enough time to spend there.... More

My wife, daugher (3yrs), and I were visitng from Chicago and we heard good things about The Magic House and decided to try it out. We wanted to plan an entire afternoon for the place and we clearly needed to plan more time! By the time they closed we still had about 25% we hadn't seen. We've been to children's... More

My husband and I checked it out and had so much fun. Literally rooms and rooms of activities for the entire family. All hands on and something for everyone. I'd love to take my grandchildren there. It is a must if you are in the area with your family. Plan to stay the entire day, you'll need it to do... More

What a fun place to take the kids! We planned on a few hours and ended up spending the whole day. We will definitely be going back again.

My Grandfather used to take me to The Magic House when I was little, so it was an awesome experience getting to see how much fun my daughter had here! She and my husband could have spent hours in the bubble room and of course she would have climbed up and down the three-story "beanstalk" all day long if we... More

We took our twins (10 yr olds) last week! A huge selection of activities for all ages. Our kids especially loved the floor where there was the president's oval office, and a court house. They have a grocery store, vet office, bubble room, and so much more. Great fun!

This is a place you must take the kids when in the city. They have numerous activities and exhibits. It has been one of our staples for some time. All of my children really enjoyed and now we are passing it on to our grandchildren.

We came here during a visit with some friends....there was so much for the kids to do and many learning opportunities also which I loved. They were so into everything there that I had to literally drag them out of there late afternoon. A must visit if you have small kids and are in the St. Louis area.

We came here with our two children, 4 and 18 months. I can honestly say it was fun for the whole family. The kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed all the different things to do and see! From science to using your imagination, this place has it all!!!! Truly a great place to bring the kids! Make sure... More
