We took our 4.5 yr old son and 2 yr old daughter to the magic house on our vacation to St. Louis. I had gone there as a school child and it has definitely changed and has been expanded a few times since then. We arrived right at opening and didn't wait more than 5 minutes to get our stickers....

It is great to visit once and only once. The kids had fun with the kinetic energy ball. They also loved the slides. I would recommend that everyone visit this once, but only once.

i am a granny to a variety of ages...from crawling babies to teens...and we all have fun here. There is a section for crawling babies and lots to do for other ages. Be aware that the kids tend to take off since they get so excited to try all the displays so i recommend one adult per child if possible.

We used to take my kids (now 13 and 11) here every time we visited St. Louis. However, since they were 10, it really doesn't appeal to them anymore. It's a perfect place for younger kiddos though :)

My kids love visiting this place each and every time we visit St. Louis. I do think there pricing is a little high given what you get but the place was packed when we were there (it was raining though) but the facility is very nice and clean so I guess it was worth it.

Great place for kids of all ages ... but our two year old loved the toddler area and had a fantastic time exploring the water area and sand table. Fantastic place for a quick in-out trip or an all-day experience!

Took two of our grandchildren on a Friday afternoon visit, the soon to be three year old enjoyed it but seemed to be bored with the exhibits you could not play on or with. The 7 year old had a much better time. See where you could spend most of a day here with that age group. There were a... More
