As Halloween approaches, skip the ghosts and ghouls of typical haunted houses and take your child to a different kind of spook-tacular event—the Not-So-Haunted House!
If you have a child who has quite the imagination, head over to St. Louis’s Magic House for some truly special Halloween fun.
At the Not-So-Haunted House event, which takes place Oct. 18-29, kids of all ages are invited to dress in their costumes and have a great time trick-or-treating. They will also get autographs from their favorite storybook characters.
This year’s event will include live guest appearances by The Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland characters.
Each child will receive a trick-or-treat bag and an autographed book for the not-so-spooky characters to sign as they travel through the four levels of the one-hundred-year-old house.
Zagat’s U.S. Family Travel Guide ranked the Magic House as the nation’s number one children’s attraction in 2005—even ahead of Disney’s Magic Kingdom! With over four hundred thousand visitors a year, the renovated Victorian museum truly is one of the nation’s most popular children’s museums.
Since 1979, the house has provided children and parents with an interactive museum dedicated to providing hands-on learning that is fun and that encourages creativity. The museum aims to help children better understand history, science, and the incredible world around them through exhibits that let them become part of the action.
The Magic House is located in Kirkwood just one mile north of I-44 at 516 Kirkwood Road. Admission is $9.50 for children one and up, and parking is free.
From all of us at Finney Law Office, LLC, we encourage you to take your children to a trick-or-treating event they’ll cherish for quite some time!
