The Magic House is a great place for Children, Teens & Adults. It is both fun & educational. The exhibits are done very nice, the graphics are very well done, and the architecture of this remodeled home and then expansion is first class. Try not to pick a crowded day as it can get somewhat loud and the wait time... More

It had been years since we visited The Magic House and much has changed. Some of the exhibits we saw years ago were still there, which, I guess, provided a bit of nostalgia.

This was by far my kids' (4 & 7) favorite part of our trip! Hands on fun for the kids around every turn. You could easily stay here all day and both parents and kids would be incredibly happy!!

My kids (age 6), my niece (2), and my nephew (2 1/2) all had a blast at The Magic House! It was so much fun watching them all explore everything- math (my son had a bunch of fun in the math area), bubbles, climbing, science, music, sewing, art (my daughter made several projects)...EVERYTHING. My son loved playing in the town.... More

If we lived in St. Louis I would definitely get a membership. Search online for the buy one get one half off admission coupon,... More

Kids and tweens will absolutely love this place. There is something for everyone! Adults even have a great time with the variety of exibits. I would highly recommend this as a military, family, and cost friendly St. Louis hit spot!
