We are Members of the Magic House Children's Museum. There are so many different and unique activities for all ages. Our five kids grew up going there for school field trips, birthday parties or just an afternoon.

This is a great place to let the kids burn some energy!! Fun items for them to play with, explore, and experience. Has educational value but also some good family fun!

Even though there is construction going on all the areas are open. We arrived after 1:00 pm in order for most of the school field trips were gone. Great place to interact with your children or play by themselves. Had a super afternoon.

I'd say a couple of hours to all day. There's a lot of creative activities and open play opportunities, so most kids won't get bored, which leaves it up to how long the grown ups are willing to give it!
