We went while we were in town for the holidays. We liked it so much we decided to join for future visits. This is not the best children's museum in the United States, but there is a LOT for kids to do. The kids are able to balance having fun and learning about the world around them. The staff was...

This is a great children's museum. Why didn't they have places like this when I was the intended age. This is great for any child what the heck I even enjoyed it at my age.

I remember going to this place as a kid and it did not disappoint as an adult! We took our 2 daughters (7 & 5) and they absolutely loved it. Plan to spend the whole day because there is so much to do! Very interactive and lots of learning while playing! Can't wait to go back!

Took the Grandkids to the Magic House and I think I had more fun than they did. Great place to wander and wonder. The music room was really enjoyable. It was around Thanksgiving and they had a huge table set up with play thanksgiving food. It is really nice that they have a snack bar. There is a really cool... More

We travel a lot and have been to a zillion kids museums and the Magic House is our favorite. Many kids museums have the same exhibits, and those are here too, but this place just keeps on going and going with tons of unique features. We've since moved away but we always budget time to hit the Magic House when... More

We have been here several times with our kids and they always have a good time. It does get quite crowded in there on the weekend especially. There are a lot of different educational but fun activities for the kids to do.

So many things to do for kids and adults enjoy it too. Such a fun way to learn too. Nice that they have a snack bar too. Kids can't get enough of this place. Fun from the time they get there til you have to drag them away.

What can I say where can you take your grandchild for the day for the money and be worn out in the air conditioning. The activities are endless

I've been here a few time everything I visit Saint Louis. The place is huge and we don't have the energy to cover all the activities they have. I would recommend this place.
