There is so much for kids to do here, it was wonderful. My son absolutely loved the construction area. He put on a helmet, goggles and work belt. He spent a lot of time shoveling stones into the cement mixer, moving foam bricks around and checking the studs of the house to make sure they were level. When I told... More

The Magic House is great for a visit with the family or a group of kids under 14. It's resourceful and fun. My 5 year old daughter loves the static machine!

Our 8 grandchildren were never disappointed when we went to Magic House. Everything is hands on - KIDS RULE. Whether they were in the government section serving as President or banging a judge's gavel; or building a house with soft bricks; or being SHERLOCK HOLMES and finding the secret door, they never stop moving. Employees are there to guide the... More

The magic house is a great place for all ages. I'm glad I went the other night because it was not so crowded. I would definitely consider renting this out for a party. In addition great for toddlers.

Spent a day here with a grandson and thoroughly enjoyed watching him interact with the various "exhibits" and enjoy them. I would highly recommend spending a bit of time researching the Magic House online and developing a strategy for progressing through the many interactive displays. There is so much going on and such a variety, that it seems likely that... More

Our 3 youngest grandkids had the day off from school - ages 6, 8, and 9. It was an off and on rainy day. We had the honor of watching the grandkids while their parents worked. We asked the grandkids if they would like to go to the Magic House. They gave a resounding "YES!". We arrived at 10:00 a.m.... More

Wonderful experience for kids from 3 to 13. The diversity of activities for all kids within a relatively small area makes this an ideal activity to share with grandchildren.

I just attended my great niece's private birthday party at the Magic House and watched my grandchildren have an awesome time. It is even fascinating for adults, too! This place is absolutely an amazing place where children of ALL AGES can enjoy! This "house" contains very basic fun children's functions, as well as mind teasers. It is a MUST SEE... More

With 4 grandchildren 5-7 years old, we are always looking for opportunities to have fun. This is the place! The activities here are for any age toddler and up! 3 story slides, water activities, storybook characters, interactive games, toys. The list is endless. We spent 3 hours and could easily return and find things we missed for 3 more hours.... More
