The Not-So-Haunted House at The Magic House has become a tradition for St. Louis families, with its storybook characters, trick-or-treat scavenger hunts and all the fun the Magic House offers year-round. This year, The Magic House is hosting Halloween Magic, meaning kids can enjoy the Not-So-Haunted House, Trick-or-Treat Town, plus lots more indoor and outdoor fun.
Halloween Magic includes the traditional Not-So-Haunted House on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Oct, 15-17, 22-24 and 29-31, where storybook characters come alive and make surprise visits throughout the museum. Children ages 2 to 12 can trick or treat throughout the museum using jokes and riddles to find treat locations, and families will enjoy Halloween craft projects in the Art Studio as well as all their favorite play experiences, many with a Halloween twist.
Outdoor experiences include Trick or Treat Town, where kids can put on their witches' hats (helmets), pick out their favorite broomstick (tricycle) and explore everything this Halloween-themed town has to offer. Your adventure includes stops at the Craft Shop, Candy Shop, Firehouse and more. After kids are done exploring, they can park their trike and play some fun yard games, like pumpkin tic-tac-toe!
Halloween Magic also includes the Pumpkin Party October 8-10, where all visitors 12 and under will receive a free mini pumpkin to decorate in the front play garden.
Be sure to stop by the cafe for Picnic Basket Specials, including pumpkin bisque, chili hot dogs, butternut squash soup, chili and cornbread.
All Halloween Magic activities are included with admission and are being held during regular museum hours.
