If you have ever been to a Magic House then this one is the same. I honestly can't remember anything outstanding about it. I know the kids, 3 and 5, loved it.

This place is amazing for kids 2 years and older. different activities and a lot of space. It is expensive if you don't get membership. They offer free night ones a month but is full with people. good for play dates with friends

I was here 20 years ago and they still had some of the exhibits I saw as a kid.(I loved the nostalgic aspect!) This place is so cool, that I seriously suggest taking at least 4 hours minimum in here. There's so much to do, I hurried my children along so we could experience everything. (I wish we had more... More

So many things to see and do here -- we took two vacations to St. Louis in 2015 and the Magic House is one of the things we did both times. My preschooler still talks about the things we did there. He enjoyed the simulated bank, library, grocery store and pizza shop. Very interactive and enough displays to entertain my... More

Every part of this facility fascinates the brain. Every angle of learning is touched by each pieces in this facility from music to scientific innovations. This is a great place to bring kids for leisure.

We live about an hour away and have visited many times. What a great experience for little ones from babies all the way up to teens. There are enough activities to keep them busy for hours.

My sons (7 and 2) love coming here and enjoying the art room, fishing pond, and veterinary hospital. My 2 year old also really enjoys the bubble room and water area, where water smocks are provided to help keep the kids relatively dry (if you don't want your child to get wet, pass this room though). My seven year old... More

We are members of the Magic House and haven't been for awhile. We have a 2 year old and a 5 year old who absolutely love visiting the Magic House. Today was the first time we visited the new kids zone. It is awesome! Really great job giving that area a much needed face lift! My 5 year old loves... More

I went with a party of 7, 3 adults and 4 kids, it is overpriced for what you get, the food menu looked disgusting and over priced and the children were bored after an hour so we ended up leaving which sucked for what we paid to get in. The children range from 3-12.
