And what I saw was Exhibits For K thur 3rd grade level . Nothing For the older Grade Level Children. Therefore, " I Concluded that the Facility Was Over-Rated".... More

This museum is catered for small children. It gives them the insight on different great careers. It opens their minds to think of what they might want to become when they grow older. It lets them dress up as doctors, with lab coats, stethoscopes, or firefighters with their gear and hose as they drive through town. Bank tellers, grocery store... More

We stayed in Miami with our toddler girl for 20 days. The Miami Childrens Museum was by far the best thing we could do for her. Pictures don't make justice for this place. It has many rooms and options to play. From the mini market, to the bank, to the fishing boat, the vet and the puppet show. Everything was... More

we loved this museum, loads of rooms, different experiences, bigger and cooler than i thought, only reason i gave 4 stars is i thought $35 for 1 adult and a toddler expensive. i think it should be free for under 2's

The place is very entertaining for kids and it has some really great activities. However, if you go on a weekend or a day where there's lots and lots of people, it can be a bit overwhelming and tedious as you will need to wait to get to play with the attractions and kids get frustrated with that. Kids definitely... More

The weather was terrible and we had time to kill before traveling to the airport. The hotel suggested this place since we have kids. Well.... we have a 9 yr, 13 yr and 1 yr old. It was a way too babyish for the older ones and our 1 yr was a little too young for it (she just wanted... More

We came here with my 2 yo and 6 yo. Both of them had a blast. There was enough to do to keep us busy for hours. It is nicely laid out so it never felt crowded. They even have a little picnic area outside so if you plan on staying for a bit and have young kids bring some... More
