Great day of fun for our 4 kids ages 1.5, 3, 5, and 6. Lots of interesting things to do. Our hotel had a coupon for free kid admission with purchase of adult. My wife and I paid separately so we used two coupons. Plan to spend the majority of your day there. Kids had a ton of fun.

it is difficult to find fun things for a 2 & 4 year old but this was great! There were so many things to do & interact with. The only negative was that it was too crowded & noisy.

This is the best children museum I have ever been. Highly recommended. My daughter had great time and she did not want to leave.

Thisis a dream cometrue for young chilren - especially ages 3 - 10 or so. It is a hands-on environment that captures the interest of every child walking in the place -- the sights and sounds are so intriguing and welcoming that even the most reticent child is gradually drawn tot he experiences there. Be aware thatit can be very... More

Unlike anywhere else I've ever been. The Magic house started out as a simple residence and has grown over the years. Full of of learning and fun, kids can use their imaginations to become part of a story book, or learn how pulleys work by hauling themselves up a wall on a seat. The flash wall has been there for...

This place was enjoyable but I would rate it just ok. It gets crazy crowded even midweek (its just not a big place) and difficult to even get close enough (or a turn) to enjoy the "exhibits". A lot of it seems to be things we do at home anyhow ... playing kitchen, art fun, block building, pretend fishing. Ok,... More

The magic house is great for kids of all ages. The price is high, but if you can stay for a few hours it's worth it. Our boy's favorite part is the little village. They will play for hours without leaving the village. Don't miss the giant slide!

You could spend hours exploring the multiple floors and wings of The Magic House. Hundreds of hands-on activities to keep children happy and occupied--slides, a "beach", bubble activities, tunnels, chalkboard walls, etc.
