I took 3 grandchildren here last week on a mini spring break holiday to St. Louis. We spent 4 hours, and they would have easily spent 6 if I hadn't moved them on from activity to activity. The children I had were ages 5, 7, and 9, and I (63) also greatly enjoyed many of the activities. There are rooms... More

A children's museum inside an old mansion. We have been going here for 30 years. I enjoyed it as a,kid and my kids enjoyed it on our trip. You have to get your picture with the static electricity thing. You can get your picture on a keepsake button. It's fun to go back and compare them years later.

This will be the best 10.00 you spend. What a wonderful place for younger children. I took my grandkids (I had reenforcements, you will need them for kid tracking!) There is so much to see and do, to touch and feel, to pretend and make!

My daughter loves this place and we have gone multiple times. It is great educational fun, where they can be involved in the learning process. My daughter has also come up with her girl scout troop and spent the night in the Magic House which was really cool. They had projects and skits they all were involved in and loved... More

My son loves this place, and we go every few months. He never wants to leave, and I have to pull him from area to area. It's a neat place, a little pricey ($10 each 2 years & up, a lot if you have multiple kiddos and both parents--you can find buy one get one half off coupons online). It... More

A crowded but fun filled evening for free. Take advantage of the many activities the Magic House has to offer monthly. This place is wonderful because children can let their imagination run wild!

We love this place. It has never failed to thrill the little ones. Tons of fun. Lots of hands on things for them to do. I can't wait to take my grandkids when they're big enough to go.
