“Kids loved it”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

We took four young children here (ages 8,8,5,4). They all had a blast. In four hours here we only made it through half of the exhibits. They especially liked the make believe area where you can pretend to be anything from a doctor, vet, librarian, restaurant owner, and several other things. You cannot fully see this place in one day. We will be coming back in the near future.

“Great for kids and provides hours of entertainment”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We took our two year old here for the first time and it was better than advertised. We had heard from friends about the place prior to going, but I was still surprised at how much there was to do here. The variety of things is extensive and seems to hit kids of all ages. We spent two hours here on a Saturday morning and had to pass by parts of it just to see it all. It definitely seems like a good place for return visits once you know where you want to go. It was plenty entertaining for a two year old, although she is very active and love to interact with things. It was not overcrowded, which was another pleasant surprise. Despite the amount of people moving through, everything was clean and in order. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The $10 price is a little high, but there are Groupons available all the time that cut bakc the price quite a bit.

“Graduation Party Venue”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

If you haven't been to the Magic House in a while, it is a must see. The addition of the White House rooms are amazing. There is a dining room so that if your little ones get hungry you can grab a snack. Lots of hands on displays!

“Fun for Kids and Adults!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

We went to the Magic House this past Sunday. We had a BLAST. There was so much more to do there than when we were kids. I have 2 kids age 5 and 2.5 years old. They both had so much fun. They didnt want to leave. The only regret we had was not allowing enough time to spend there. We spent 4 hours there and we could've easily stayed another 2 hours! We will be making a full day trip to the Magic House on our next trip to St. Louis!
