General Info:
The Magic House is a not-for-profit organization founded by two St. Louis women, Jody Newman and Barbie Freund, who volunteered three years of their time to create a cultural institution that would be both educational and fun. The house was originally built in 1901 as a private home for the George Lane Edwards family. Mr. Edwards was a managing partner in his family brokerage firm, A.G. Edwards & Sons, as well as the first president of the St. Louis Stock Exchange and a director of the 1904 St. Louis World Fair. Thanks to the efforts of the founders and the contributions of many St. Louis-area individuals, corporations and foundations, The Magic House opened to the public on October 16, 1979.

We went here yesterday. It was...

We went here yesterday. It was very very busy but never crowded. Both of my girls (5yo & 8mo) had a lot of fun. We ate lunch on the patio after ordering from The Picnic Basket Cafe located inside The Magic House. It was delicious. Definitely a must stop place for future trips.

Pretty neat for kids

Took the kids to the Magic House the other day and it was better than expected. Lots of things for kids to do and learn. What better way to get the young brains working than to take them here. Many different areas to check out, but because it is a popular place it tends to be a bit crowded and you may have to wait to interact with the displays. Overall a good time. Check the local magazines at any hotel and browse through it. You may find a 2 for 1 coupon.

Great for busy kids

All children will find something fun at the Magic House. It's filled with great hands on science experiments for the kids and worth the price of admission. Plan on spending a full day here and arrive early in the morning. Make sure not to miss the town where they have a home, bank, grocery store, pizza place, tv station and more that the kids can play in. The fishing pond is another favorite (magnetic fish). No food or drink is available here however so plan accordingly.

Oh, the memories!

As a grade-school kid growing up in St. Louis, this was my all-time favorite annual field trip. I'd love to go back and see how well it's aged. Do they still have the ""touch tunnel""? The static-electricity exhibit? As I remember it, the Magic House is a really great educational concept that kids really love.
