Magic House Description
Little kids cheer the let-loose atmosphere at Magic House, a children's museum with a little education secretly tucked in. Touching a static-charged ball and watching one another's hair stand on end elicits squeals of delight. Move on to don a rain slicker and splash in the current of the tabletop waterway system, balance a ball on a current of air, and paint masterpieces in the art studio. While Magic House is ideal for preschoolers, little siblings aren't left out: babies have a play space of their own.
Babies: The under-2 set are the target of the For Baby & Me section of the museum, offering gentle places to explore, including a baby gym and a miniature school bus.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Staging puppet shows and crawling through tunnels, kids between age 2 and 6 love Magic House most for all the entertaining play it offers.
