The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum is a not-for-profit organization that opened to the public on October 16, 1979. Since then, we have grown to 55,000 square feet, featured hundreds of new exhibits, and have welcomed over 15 million visitors! We are honored to have provided families in the St. Louis region, and around the country, a place where imaginations are sparked, curiosity is piqued, and problem-solving skills are developed through a variety of hands-on experiences.
