The Magic House, Saint Louis

4.5
#1 of 8 in Childrens Museums in Missouri
In a 5,100 sq m (55,000 sq f) space, The Magic House features exhibits, resources, and activities for children to experiment with, create, and develop problem-solving skills. Look for some of these favorite exhibits: an electrically charged ball that creates static electricity, a large pin screen that holds the shape of your body, a giant kaleidoscope, and an art studio. Older children get to solve mysteries by analyzing fingerprints, crawling through ductwork, and opening secret doors. Kids have the opportunity to stay overnight with one parent, an experience that includes an evening snack and breakfast plus extra time to enjoy more than 100 exhibits.
