This place was awesome but holy moly bring some ear plugs. Our almost 2 year old daughter had a lot of fun but seemed a little over whelmed at times. They had all kinds of stuff to do and she loved every bit of it. Keep an eye on your kids. There were hundreds of people here. We got there... More

Do be in a hurry to check this place out, but once you arrive don't be in a hurry to check everything out and leave for your next agenda item. Plan for at minimum 3-4 hours at The Magic House just to get around and see/play with everything there is to offer. I visited here over 25years ago and had... More

We visited here on a Friday in late July with another family (total of four kids between ages 3-7). We had not been to The Magic House before and we were pleasantly surprised (after being amazed by the City Museum in St. Louis previously). This is one of the better children's museums we have been two as we have visited... More

I have gone there to many times to remember when my kids were growing up. They constantly are adding new things. You nor your kids will be disappointed.

My 6 year old had a great time. A lot of cool things to work their imagination. There were a lot of people there but it has so many things to do that it doesn't appear packed. We will definitely be back!!

I have not seen anything like this in the country. The cool building architecture and the tons of fun inside for kids and adults just cannot be beat. This is mainly a family place and especially for young children but can be fun for anyone. All hands on activities make this a very engaging place to spend a couple of... More

A great place for hands on activities for children of many ages! We spent the whole day here and didn't get to everything! Plus in July in St. Louis is was great to be able to stay in door and keep cool!

Just go - something for all ages. Sensory bins for infants, water play for toddlers, plenty of adventures for rambunctious kids, fascinating displays for adults...

Great place for young children, although our early teens found their imaginations again. The price is a little high for a family of six, but our children enjoyed the Magic House. So many things to do that spark a child's imagination!! Highly recommended.

We had not been in nine years! They had really expanded it! Our kids loved it! Many hours of fun! It was many hours of fun for only $10.00 a piece! You can also get coupons online for it too!
