“A great place to take the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

The Magic House is a St. Louis gem. Kids can spend hours playing in the place while learning science, math, history, music and social studies. They have an area specifically designed for kids less than four to learn about sound, sand and water tables, and exploring tunnels.
They have an area set up like a town with a grocery, library, vet clinic, tv studio, bank and utility. The kids learn about each of the stations while playing.
They have a 3 story bean stalk for kids to climb up. There is also an area where kids can play in a mock up of the oval office, a court room, and the white house press room. There is a construction area where kids can learn about the construction trades.
They have a small cafeteria area for you to buy snacks.

“One of St. Louis' finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

My family has visited the Magic House every year for 6 years. It never disappoints. There is something new to see each visit. Two of my children are teenagers and they have just as much fun as my 9 year-old. Take one visit and you'll see why.

There are so many corners of this place to visit with so many things for the kids to do. Spend the whole day.

“One of the bright spots in a bad city.”

The Magic House is a wonderful place too bad it's in the suburbs. Great, great place for families, one of a few gems this town has to offer.

“Overcrowded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

And we went on what the staff said was a slow day. They need to limit the number of people each day. It wa overcrowded, my kids couldn't get to some of the fun things to do because of so many kids, and as usual parents don't control their children so chaos is abound.
