Took my 3 kids here(ages3,5,11). 2 younger ones loved it and want to go back. Older liked it because he was with a friend and they played together. Otherwise, he would have been bored. Lots of fun interactive activities. Even a little Publix grocery store. Kids took carts, chose groceries, paid at cash register, put stuff back on shelves and... More

We took our son there when he was 3. I don't remember one thing that wasn't broken or missing pieces. They said they only had one maintenance man. Well we went back about a year later thinking maybe he fixed something. Nope, Not one thing was fixed since the last time. Sad really. A place like that has such potential... More

It was a cute museum. Unfortunately it did feel a little bit out dated. There are a lot of different areas for the kids to do. Staff was very nice and helpful. The place in general seemed like it could use some work. My daughter who is 2 had a blast. At the end of the day, thats all that... More

First thing, excellent customer service at the ticket desk, convenient location across from a lovely park in a trendy neighborhood. Adm prices were fair, but would not entertain purchasing an annual pass, or visiting regularly, once you've been there once, there's nothing else to go back for. Very boring exhibits, nice for very small children, under 8, but even my... More

I visited with my daughters for the first time in April when there was a fundraiser to benefit the museum, during this trip we signed up for the year family pass! It's about $70 for a family of 6 and worth every dollar! There are three levels for the kids to play and they never want to leave! My daughters... More

The entire place is just fun and relaxing, good for small kids. Unfortunately not all exhibits worked. The place really needs update.

When my son was young, I took him here to play several times until he was too old for it. Bringing his daughters (and him and his wife) here ~15 years later was both a trip back in time, and a pleasant experience with all the upgrades and changes. Both girls, 2 and almost 4, loved the exhibits, especially "Publix"... More

I have a 5 and 2 year old and they had a good time with the exhibits. Very hands on and a good size.

Great for small children and families. Lots to do and is part of a reciprocal program so we could use our membership there for free admission. Close to lots of restaurants.

I went here with a 3 and 5 year old. They had a great time! There are so many hands on learning areas that we spent half a day wondering around. They have a different craft that they do each day that is included in the price. Be careful where you park. There is a city garage in the same... More
