(KTVI) – It’s official. Plans for a family-friendly exhibit from The Magic House at Lambert Airport were formally announced Thursday morning.

Rally St. Louis helped the Magic House raise enough money for a 1,500-square foot kids experience inside the airport.

The interactive area will be called The Play Port St. Louis International and will feature a transportation “hub of fun.” Kids will be able to pretend they are flying the plane, working the control tower or serving as a TSA agent in the indoor playground.

The child-sized area will include ticket agent desks, a plane, cars, security screening area and a control tower.

Construction could start by the end of the year, and the exhibit should open sometime before Labor Day next year in Concourse C. Airlines in this concourse include Cape Air, US Airways, American and Frontier.

The Magic House and Lambert signed a seven-year contract for the exhibit.
