We drove down to St. Louis, Missouri to take our children to the Magic House thinking it was mainly just for kids but we adults ended up enjoying it as much as the kids..lol. Its definitely a place the whole family will enjoy for hours.

This was our second trip to the Magic House and we were pleased to see the expansion that was completed. Our grandkids loved it and had a great time.

This is an amazing place to take kids of all ages! Took our toddler there and he had such an amazing time! Took my nieces/nephews a couple years ago and they still talk about it. I can't say enough about how amazing this place is.

We LOVE the Magic House. Easy to get to and inexpensive entertainment for the kids. You can spend hours here and the kids will go from exhibit to exhibit non-stop. Best for kids 10 and under, if they are over that age the City Museum is more entertaining for them. The entire place is very clean and well kept.

This was a great place to bring our 7 year old niece. Not only did she have tons of fun, but she learned a lot too. Her favorite part was touching the static ball and watching our hairs stand up on our heads.

This was a last minute addition to our trip since many of the locals we had met asked if we had been there yet. Very large interactive museum! Our boys are 9 and 12. They had fun with what they could do but the majority of the activities are for younger children. I would say 8 and younger is a... More

Went with my sister and nieces (ages 3, nearly 2, and 7 weeks) to the Magic House in Kirkwood (STL suburb). Price is $10 for anyone over age 1, but look online for discounts & also found one in the Entertainment coupon book. Museum has many hands on activities for children of various ages, including a special limited access area... More

Arrive early and be ready to spend all day here as your kids will not want to leave and you will not want to force them to. There are so many things to do it's impossible to focus on one thing! A few of the things I will talk about are the giant beanstalk roped in stairway, the offices of... More

There are so many fun interactive interesting exhibits you could spend a couple of days at The Magic House. We've been 4-6 times and had my daughters 8th birthday party there.
