The Magic House and the City of Kirkwood are partnering to teach children about safety through a new interactive exhibit. At “Kirkwood Safety Town,” scheduled to open Sept. 30, visitors can explore a child-sized neighborhood complete with fire and police stations, an electric company, farmers’ market, train station, park and house.
As they travel through the city on trikes, children will learn traffic, electric and water safety. The exhibit is designed to help kids learn to protect themselves at home, outdoors and on the road. Families can also visit a bike helmet-fitting station and meet with community helpers like fire fighters and police officers.
“Kirkwood Safety Town” will be open at The Magic House for one month each spring and fall through 2021, and will also travel to fairs, festivals and other destinations throughout the St. Louis region. “Kirkwood Safety Town” is presented by St. Louis Children’s Hospital with supporting sponsorships by Scott Barthelmass Painting Company, COUNTRY Financial, John and Karen Drexler, Firefighters of Kirkwood, Lou Fusz, Lowes Kirkwood, Schicker Automotive Group and Woodard Cleaning & Restoration.
The Magic House is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Rd., Kirkwood, MO. Admission is $11. Children under the age of 1 are free.
