The Magic House is the premier place to play in St. Louis for little kids. It’s fun and sneaks in just the right amount of education when the kids aren’t looking.
I’m not sure when the Magic House got so expensive–but you can avoid that $9.50 a head ticket price if you wait for a Free Family Night.
Sponsored by Emerson, the Magic House offers one free admission night a month. The house is only free from 5:30pm to 9:00pm.
There is a limit of two adults and four (of their own!) children per “family.”
The free Fridays are always the 3rd Friday of the month.

If you can’t wait for a Free Friday, or you’re worried about a crowd, here’s link to the St. Louis Family Attraction’s card which currently has a buy one, get one free coupon to the Magic House. You can also find these cards (which look more like brochures) at Dierbergs, Shop ‘n Save or Schnucks.
