Great experience. Crowded, but fun for any age child.

Allow time to check out all of the sections. There are lots of hands on activities for kids younger and older. The cafe is also good for a lunch break with lots of delicious choices.

Plan to spend the whole day there! You can leave and get back in if you want to leave for lunch. I recommend bring a picnic style lunch and eating outside if it is nice out.

Took our 4 year old granddaughter. Enough to do for the whole day. Took a short lunch break at Dewey's pizza. Easy, free parking.

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.
