This place was very fun for the kids. There were tons of people. I recommend a 1:1 ratio if you want to be able to keep an eye on your kids. The kids definitely want to go back.

Wonderful time with our son, DIL and two granddaughter's at The Magic House. Last time there was 30 years ago and WOW what a difference. Keep up the great work of helping children, and adults for that matter, find enjoyable activities.

My 7- and 4-year-olds had a great time. Even the dramatic play areas incorporated basic math (bank, market) and health concepts (baby hospital, vet). There were some exhibits that were truly STEAM, like the Musical Slope that plays a famous composition when you drop balls...More

While "The Magic House" was crowded, we would not have missed this fun-filled 'house' which we thoroughly enjoyed. For the kids, this was pure fun. To watch their faces with each discovery in each room was pure 'parent-fun'. Will certainly return to this house, again,...More
