Halloween Magic at The Magic House

October 13 TO November 1 | The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum | $12

Halloween is bigger, better and more boo-tiful than ever at The Magic House this year!  Enjoy social-distanced trick or treating for candy-free treats, added outdoor fun and other “spooktacular” experiences.


Reservations are required for this reduced capacity event.


Halloween Magic will feature the museum’s traditional Not-So-Haunted House, sponsored by Schnucks, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 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, plus families will enjoy Halloween craft projects in the Art Studio as well as all their favorite play experiences – many with a Halloween twist.


New outdoor experiences, all included with museum admission:

  • Trick or Treat Town: kids take a trike trip through a Halloween-themed pretend community learning safety tips and trick or treating along the way.
  • A Pumpkin Maze: families navigate a pumpkin-adorned maze with a special treat for those who find their way out.
  • Superhero Mask-erade: with help of a masked superhero, children decorate their own masks to wear to school or out in the community.
  • Secret Message Scavenger Hunt: trick or treaters collect clues along a “spooky” garden path to find a delicious treasure.

Professional artists will be on hand to carve pumpkins and apple cider, pretzels and other fall treats will be available for purchase.


As an added attraction, Halloween Magic will include free admission to the museum’s newest traveling exhibit, Wild Kratts: Creature Power! where visitors will learn more about sometimes spooky or creepy, but always interesting animals!


The Magic House adheres to all CDC, local and state guidelines including, limiting attendance to 25% capacity to allow for social distancing and requiring all staff as well as visitors ages 5+ to wear masks. Hand sanitizer and wipe stations are placed throughout the Museum and staff members are cleaning continuously throughout all public hours.
