New and Special Exhibits

Make-It Workshop

Opening May 3, 2014

We’re building, designing and inventing something one-of-a-kind in our Make-It Workshop! This new exhibit, adjacent to the Art Studio, encourages families to unleash their inner inventors and create together, while using a wide variety of crafting tools, from woodworking to embroidery to robotics.

The Magic House is grateful for the Earl E. and Myrtle E. Walker Foundation and the William T. Kemper Foundation—Commerce Bank, Trustee for making the Make-It Workshop possible.


Sandcastle Beach

May 15 – June 29, 2014

Mark you calendar for a day at the beach–Sandcastle Beach! The Magic House is building up tons of sand and excitement for the most "sandsational" exhibit ever constructed. This summer, with the help of 10 truckloads of sand, The Magic House's backyard will be transformed once again into a beachfront park, complete with tons of sand, hidden seashells and beach umbrellas. The whole family is "shore" to dig the return of Sandcastle Beach!
