We were given annual memberships as a gift (they're also offered at certain times of the year at a large discount on Groupon), and we come every week for the art program on Fridays. It's a great place for younger kids (though our 10 year old feels she's getting to old for it). The staff is always very nice. We... More

My nephew had his birthday here, we had a private room for the party and the kids admissions were included in the party price. I brought my sisters kids (ages 5, 3) and they had a blast! There are so many things to explore. They have several hands-on displays, including a tree house room were they could climb, and an... More

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.

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
