Not the best compared to other cities, but good enough for entertaining younger kids a few hours. If you're a local, don't pay admission, just get a membership. Worth it. It tends to get crowded and loud, though, so not for overly sensitive children. Can certainly kill a few hours here. There's a Subway for snacks or bring your own... More

Went here two weeks ago. Children 1 and under get in free but anything over that has to pay full price. Yikes! It's a 2 story building with one cool thing after another. There's a giant sand castle in the center. My nephews especially enjoyed the fireman/police area where they could dress up and play with fire trucks. There's a... More

Nice place to go to especially during rainy Florida afternoons. Entertaining for children 3-8 years. It's small and compact, you can probably go through it within 2 hours. My daughters had the most fun in the recording studio.

Our 5-year-old daughter loved it, even though we visited it in a day when many groups from schools were there. She loved the supermarket and also the art area, where she could make her art booklet and also play with other materials. In some parts she didn't want to visit. It's a good place to take kids.

My 3 year old daughter had a blast! Lots of fun, interesting and helpful exhibits for kids. She loved making her own book at the arts and craft section.

We go to Miami quite often. We like to break up the activities to get a break from the heat for the kids. This museum is a great place to do this. It explores many different activities that relate to many different areas such as banking, the shipping industry, art, police, fireman and cruising industry. It also has a great... More

If you have children, take them here. Children can touch everything, play with everything. the only problem you will have is convincing your child to leave one particular area to get to another area to see what else they have to offer,

We took my one year old, and were just looking to kill some time without being outside in the heat. She had a blast. As a veteran I got in free and obtained discount tickets for the rest of my party. I cannot thank them enough for honoring veterans and taking care of us. There are many different areas to... More

This is a great 1/2 day adventure for kids 3-8 years. MCM features a nice outdoor playground (free) and two levels of indoor exhibits that have multiple areas to explore. Floor one has a grocery store that kids can grab a card and "shop" for plastic food items.... typical of all the areas - allows kids to pretend to be... More
