Our son is 7. Be prepared to spend the day here. We were here for 5 hours, skipping 2 of the larger exhibits. They have the best mix of exhibits for different story ages that I have ever seen in a children's museum. For those of you with school aged children, the mystery exhibit is awesome! You do have to...

For $11/person, a bit overpriced the coolest thing was the room where you color a picture and then scan it and it goes on an interactive wall and then you can scan your picture and it prints out a 3D cut out so u can build your drawing, so that was the part my kids really liked and the bubble...

The Magic House Was an amazing experience, especially the children's village, the Oval Office, and solve the mystery. Just be warned it was packed on a Tuesday, to the point where you spent 20 minutes driving around the parking lot trying to find a spot. Very Affordable for spending 4 hours there. We arrived at 1:30 and stayed until it... More

More than twice as big as it once was, there is so many cool things to see and get hands on with. The kids will love it. The parents will get a kick out of some of the exhibits as well. Check it out. It's a fun time and worth the cost of admission.

Magic House is a great place to take the kids for a nice afternoon or morning activity. My grandson is only 20 months old and there are so many things he already loves to do here. The bubble room, the water tables, the Daniel Tiger (traveling exhibit) ...too many activities to name them all here. I can't speak to the... More

This place did not disappoint. Went with my little girl - who's only 7 months old - and thought it was amazing. Since she's so little, there wasn't much for us to do, but she still had some fun in their traveling exhibit featuring Daniel Tiger. They also have a lovely gift shop, where you aren't taxed on whatever you... More

Visiting the Magic House with my 2 year old grandson was so much fun! I first thought the price was a bit high, but I've changed my mind after seeing how much there is to see and do here! It is a fully interactive place for children to learn and have fun! And fun was had by us all! We... More

There are all kinds of activities to keep littles busy. A lot of thought went into this attraction. A MUST if you have little ones.
