If you live in Lakeland and have preschool aged kids, an annual membership is a must. There are some good permanent exhibits for kids to play at, plus there are plenty of special events on the X5 calendar.

Not badly priced, such a fun experience for smaller children. They have a mini publix market for kids to play in as if they work or shop their as well as many other fun pretend play areas! Everyone should visit at least once!

My children LOVED this museum! They were too excited about the different hands on activities they were able to play with. I enjoyed the fact that they were not rushed. It did get a little boring to me after being there a while, but the kids really did enjoy it.

I would recommend this children's museum for families with preschool age kids. Check the event calendar for various activities throughout the month. My daughter's favorite part was the Publix grocery store set up and the orange grove.

i was expecting so much more. it has a lot of potential but there did not seem to be much going on during my visit. Right in the heart of town, it has a great location. i hope they get some investors to really put this great location to use. i would like to see it do more wacky science... More

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
