My kids loved this! So much to do and see. Perfect for a rainy day. However, it was pricy for a family of 6, and they charge the same kids price for those over 1 year.

Probably one of the best children's museums my family and I have ever visited and we have visited a lot! Check out their new exhibit Sketch Aquarium that allows kids to color a fish, scan it and then it becomes part of this digital gesture interactive, AMAZING stuff. Another spot worth visiting if your in Miami with the family. Don't... More

My kids (ages 11, 10 and 7) loved it here. But then what 7 year old British boy WOULDN"T love getting on a pretty good copy of an American police motor bike? There are complaints from other reviewers about exhibits being broken and yes there were one or two, but overall I found this well maintained, pleasant to walk round... More

As a frequent city-breaker and former resident of many major cites, including NY, Chicago & London, I have been to my share of museums. This is one of the best I've seen for young kids. Like an educational, interactive Disneyland. The downsides... It's pricey ($18 per adult I think) & there's no food or drink inside. But I would definitely... More

It should be a big indoor playground for kids but our kids (5, 4 and 1,5 y) had no fun at all. The whole thing is in a very bad condition lot of things are broken, they don't work and it's a a real mess everywhere so you can't find the things they are meant to play with. There are... More

To enter the museum there is a full fee for kids over 1 year. But many attractions, specially workshops and art crafts are definitely for older kids. Definitely not worth the money. Lot of attractions were under construction and therefore closed. Most of attractions were not working properly or dysfunctional at all. We`ve visited many museums in US, some of... More

We truly loved it, had a great fun and we stayed there 3 hours.The ground floor is like a small village with a supermarket where kids can buy anything and it looks like real stuff. There is also a bank, doctor's office, fire station ect. Superb! The first floor deals with journey, travel, ships... you can be a real captain... More
