I have loved the Magic House ever since I was a little girl, so getting to bring my boys to explore all of the classic parts, as well as all the new parts, is very special to me. They love it EVERY BIT as much as I did..... and STILL DO!!

The ever changing exhibits on the main floor are always so interactive and a great place to start the wonder-filled journey through the Magic House. There never seems to be enough time to do all that is available; but it always makes for a great "next time". Thanks for continuing to making learning such a great experience.

Come early, stay late! You can re-enter if you need to take a break. Late afternoon is less crowded. My granddaughter could live there. Food at their little luncheonette was reasonable, though portions were a little small.

From Our Editors

Though built as a private home in 1901, the Victorian mansion stood vacant for years—until its first children's hands-on exhibits opened to the public more than 35 years ago. Since then, The Magic House's curators have worked to engage children of all ages in learning and creative thought through a range of interactive multimedia exhibits. Their exhibits enable visitors to service cars, climb treehouse ladders, and go fishing in a child-centric community, or play with pumps and pipes in a waterworks playground. They can also climb a three-story fairy-tale beanstalk or use detective skills, fingerprint analyses, and secret passageways to solve mysteries.

Museum staffers also organize a range of themed birthday parties, during which attendees play and complete special tasks as time travelers, scientists, or fairy-tale nobility. Family programs encompass monthly visits from outside professional artists, and special events designed to get the whole family moving. Visitors can refuel for exploration at the on-site Picnic Basket Cafe, whose menu highlights whole grains and healthy ingredients.
