“Created by the St. Louis Children’s Museum, and based on the best-selling children’s book series written by Mary Pope Osborne and published by Random House, the Magic Tree House® traveling exhibit allows visitors to branch out through history via a magical, time-traveling tree house.  Join Jack and Annie, as they are whisked away in time to experience three important  periods in American history: Thanksgiving on Thursday, Civil War on Sunday, and Twister on Tuesday.



In Thanksgiving on Thursday, children can climb Plymouth Rock, dig for clams on the beach, help prepare the feast in a Pilgrim house and set the Thanksgiving table.

Children can then get swept up in the American Civil War with Civil War on Sunday, where they have the opportunity to take a bumpy ride in a horse drawn ambulance, play drums in a drummer boy’s tent and work as a nurse in a field hospital.















MTH-brochure-18 Children are sure to be blown away by Twister on Tuesday where they can go to school in a one-room school house, drive the steam engine and experience a simulated tornado! The Magic Tree House® Exhibit allows imaginations to grow. Let the adventure begin!*
