The Magic House St. Louis Children's Museum opens children's eyes to the world through interactive exhibits, theatre performance, and old-fashioned playtime (courtesy, The Magic House St. Louis Children's Museum)

Experience the wonders of science firsthand at The Magic House, an indoor playground packed with interactive exhibits for folks of all ages. At Air-mazement, kids control air flow to shoot scarves and colorful balls through a maze, while aspiring architects can lay out blueprints, crawl through pipes, and build their very own firehouse in the Construction Zone.

Creativity and curiosity are always encouraged at the museum—kids can even jam together on jumbo piano keys and oversized instruments. Birthday parties and special events double the usual crowds, so expect a little elbow nudging at this popular summertime destination. The best hours to visit are between 2 and 4 p.m. or weekday afternoons, when you and your crew will have free reign of the 50,000-square-foot space and hundreds of exhibits.
