Be a part of our future!

The Magic House is Reimagining Our Future with a comprehensive campaign:

  • To invest in the Museum’s building, grounds and exhibits;
  • To increase community outreach and broaden our relationship with underserved communities;
  • To strengthen financial sustainability.

Construction is already underway on key projects including a STEAM Center, the Wonder Why? early childhood learning lab, a connecting corridor that will allow better access between wings, and a beautiful new entrance and gardens to welcome visitors. The campaign also includes a satellite location in the City of St. Louis as part of the newly opened MADE makerspace, created in partnership with the Cortex Innovation Community and Third Degree Glass Factory.

Through a tax-deductible gift, your family can be a part of The Magic House now and in the future. These opportunities make wonderful gifts and are great ways to honor loved ones, commemorate a special occasion or proclaim your love for The Magic House!
