The Magic House @ MADE to Open on Delmar in June
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 26, 2019 - Beginning Friday, June 7, families will be invited to explore The Magic House @ MADE, the Museum's brand new permanent makerspace for kids located in the City of St. Louis on Delmar Boulevard just two blocks west of Kingshighway.
Created in partnership with the Cortex Innovation Community and MADE STL, The Magic House @ MADE supports the Museum's mission to engage all children with hands-on learning experiences that spark imagination pique curiosity, enhance creativity and develop problem-solving skills in a place of beauty, wonder, joy and magic.
This new STEAM discovery space is designed by The Magic House for children ages 6 -13. The Magic House @ MADE's 7,000-square-foot interactive space will be divided into four areas: a Makers Workshop, Artists Studio, Designers Lab and an Entrepreneurs Market Place. Visitors will have the opportunity to design for a 3D printer, have an introduction to robotics, learn to silkscreen, 'paint' on a digital easel and more.
The Magic House @ MADE will be located on the second floor of MADE. The lower level, an adult makerspace, opened in November 2018 after much anticipation following the closing of TechShop in 2017. MADE is a collaborative effort between Cotex and Square Co-Founder Jim McKelvey. The Magic House @ MADE's opening marks the effort to include children and family experiences at MADE.
In a release, Jim McKelvey, Third Degree Glass Factory and Square Co-Founder, said "Kids and their parents will both love this new space. Creativity and community combined."
"The Magic House @ MADE will provide elementary and middle school students with tools to foster their creativity and ignite a lifelong spirit of innovation" said Beth Fitzgerald, President of The Magic House. "We are thrilled to have a permanent extension of our Magic House brand in the City of St. Louis. In addition to reaching new children and families, we will also be able to increase our commitment in providing free services for children in need through partnerships with schools, libraries and community organizations in the area."
In 2018, with support from the Museum's Access for All initiative, The Magic House provided free educational experiences to over 90,000 children and families in need at no cost.
The creation of The Magic House @ MADE would not be possible without support from the Cortex Innovation Community to assist in funding the satellite location's equipment, exhibits and operation, specifically helping to offer free admission and programs for children and families from underserved areas of St. Louis.
In addition to exhibit space, a large classroom will provide programming space for school field trips, after-school workshops and weekend birthday parties beginning in August. 2019 summer camp registration is currently underway for weeklong camps June 10 through August 2. Interested families may register online at www.magichouse.org/MADE.
The Magic House @ MADE is located at 5127 Delmar Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri 63108. Admission is $5 per person over the age of 1 and parking is free. Memberships will be available, offering families unlimited admission opportunities.
Hours of operation at the satellite will be consistent with The Magic House's Kirkwood location, allowing for groups to experience guided field trip tours during the school year, prior to public visiting hours.
The Magic House is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Road, one mile north of Highway 44 in historic downtown Kirkwood. Regular Museum admission is $12 per person. Children under the age of one are free. Hours during the school year are Tuesday through Thursday, 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm; Friday, 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm; Saturday, 9:30 am to 5:30 pm; and Sunday, 11:00 am to 5:30 pm.
