The Magic House was the first museum in the nation to host Future Play, a hands-on exhibit that encourages children to explore collaboration and creativity using technology, art and imagination. The exhibit, which opened May 28, was scheduled to end Sept. 5, but the museum has decided to keep three of the exhibit’s components: Sketch Town, Paper Craft the Light Ball Orchestra.
“The Magic House is dedicated to offering innovative and fresh exhibits,” said Carrie Hutchcraft, director of communications for The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum. “Our temporary summer exhibit, Future Play: Art + Technology, fit that description so well that we have found a way to keep this exhibit on site permanently.”
Future Play will be located in the lower level adjacent to the Make-It Workshop and Art Studio. It replaces the Lewis and Clark Trail exhibit, which was originally designed to be open from 2004 to 2007, the length of the original Lewis and Clark Expedition. Future Play is free with regular museum admission.
The Magic House is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Rd., St. Louis, MO, 63122. Call 314-822-8900 for more information.
