The magic house was a nice surprise. Our kids enjoyed the kid town and played for hours in this one area. They also enjoyed the art and craft rooms. There is a lot to do and see. It costs $10 for each person, adult and child, but it is a lot of value. Very interactive and educational but also fun. Much better than the science center. Ideal age is any child 4-12.Definitely would go back!

Our 2 year old is obsessed with Sid the Science Kid, so when we learned that Magic House had this exhibit we planned our spring break trip to St. Louis. Everything about the Magic House is well done. There is so much to see and do that we could have easily spent more than one day there. The biggest hits, besides the exhibit, were the construction zone, the oval office, and the beanstalk. Perfect place for kids of all ages!

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.

I have fond childhood memories from about twenty years ago. It was amazing then and now that it has grown the excellence has grown with it. My children 4 and 2 were captivated the entire time. Amazing.

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.
