Little kids LOVE the Magic House !! Lots of fun things to do and it's educational. When they need to run around and scream and have fun this is the place to go.

There's a ton of stuff to do here. However, it tends to get really crowded. That's the only downside. Other than that, it's a blast. Kids love it and so do adults.

The house is full of activities that are entertaining and educational. like being a bank teller or running a pizza parlor. Parents can join the children pretend.

Listed as the most popular family attraction in the nation oriented just for kids. This Victorian home has sprouted several extensions over the years to house the museum's hundreds of exhibits -- all interactive.

We spent a couple of hours here and my 6 and 10 year old loved it. It's not in the city centre so a car is useful. Nice cafe and gardens too.
