The name is very deceptive. Thought I was going to a scary place with my granddaughter Turns out that we are going to have to get membership Because we plan to visit once a month The three hours we spent were not enough We did only one quarter of the house When we got to the baby room we could...

The Magic House is located in Kirkwood and is a great kid or family destination. There are so many things for kids to do here...and adults will enjoy themselves watching...and engaging in activities too! Downtown Kirkwood has several restaurant options that provide breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner options...most of which are less than 5 minutes from The Magic House.

Another low cost family activity for you to spend hours, plan on at least 2 to 4 hours. Small children / toddlers won't want to leave!

We spent a rainy day at the Magic House. We got there right when it opened and it was already busy. It's perfect for a pre-K child and had activities for younger and old kids too. Particularly enjoyed the construction zone, magnetic hair raising adventure and the giant slide at the end.

A favorite stop for my grandson's. This will take most all day to see and do everything and you don't want to miss a thing! Our favorite part was touching the ball and seeing our hair go straight up I the air! Then there is an area where you color and designed cars, trucks, houses, airplanes and then scan them... More

My two sons (age 9 and 4) and I enjoyed a day at The Magic House. It is reasonably priced, very clean and tons of fun. Plenty for both young and older kids to explore and enjoy. I would highly recommend a visit.

Wonderful for children! All ages. My 3 year old really enjoyed it. It was pretty crowded, but we went on a Saturday morning.
