“Kids and Adults will Luv it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have been a Member for the last few years, if you plan on going more than twice a year it will pay to become a member. My grandchildren and I have spent 5 to 6 hours there and always find new things to do or exhibits to see. A hint Most Friday nights about 5pm, it empties out and you have it almost all to yourself.

“Best thing since fried playdough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My daughter is 2 and absolutely enjoyed everything in this building. I use to come here when I was little and it has gotten so much better! It is expensive paying $10 for a 2 year old, but Drury included a buy one get one coupon in my room, so that helped tremendously.

“Great place for kids”

There is so much to do at the magic house. Expect the unexpected. Very busy place, there always seems to be a school field trip there.

“A Perfect Afternoon for Grandkids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We spent two hours exploring the Magic House with a 5 and 8 year old... truly never a dull moment! I remember visiting this attraction 20 years ago with my children. It has been wonderfully maintained and expanded in that time. It does need some attention to maintenance, noticeably in the Catch and Release pond. The Children's Town area really captured the kids imaginations! The Grocery Store, The Bank, The Library and especially The Veterinary Clinic were terrific, with lots of imaginative props that allowed kids to really "play the career role". Special kudos to the designers of the Construction Zone - an imaginative free-play area with lots of "work together" opportunities as well. No squabbling; all the age-ranges seemed to enjoy building together! The Discovery Trail was fantastic also, but tough for Grandparents to negotiate!

“Great for kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Been twice using Groupon. Probably wouldnt go without a groupon. Really neat place but it gets PACKED during the weekend. Lots of interactive activities for the kids, they could spend HOURS in there and not even cover it all. Overall its a truely great place to take kids, maybe 3 plus. Any younger and there isnt much they can do.
