My niece and nephew have grow but 25 years ago this was a great place to take them to learn and be active. I know parents who take their kids now and this place has tripled or more in size and is an even better place for your children to explore, be active and learn. http://www.magichouse.org/

Fantastic place to spend hours with your kids. Allows them to use their imagination. I went with my 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren. I'm a little bit of a germ phobe so I was trying not to touch too many things the little ones touch obviously, however they have lots of Germ X posted around on the walls so... More

We took our 5 year old here. Lots of hands on things for him to do. We did have to pay over $9.00 per person going in. That l think is a little high priced. The place is big, spread out quite a bit also. I do think they should have more learning things in there for the kids. It's... More

Lots of different things for the kids to do. Boys and girls get a great hands on experience. Make sure to go early in the day as it can get busy!

Was dissappointed with the size of the crowds which made the exhibits less enjoyable. The layout of the house also made some areas difficult to move past areas that were of less interest. Was expensive for what you got.

Kids seem to enjoy but doesn't seem like there is enough for them to do to justify the price. Needs an update.

The museum layout is weird and a little difficult to maneuver and find all the exhibits. We were thinking that we would only be at the museum for a couple of hours but stayed for much longer than we expected. My kids are 3, 7, and 10 and it was appropriate for all three of them.

This place really is Magic! Tons of hands on activities for the little ones. Make sure you grab a map and check out the kid sized city. We missed this whole section the first TWO times we went! It accessed by a hallway that is easily missed. Some activities are for the youngest of children. There is a whole water... More
