This a a wonderful place to take small kids. Really nice facility with tons to do and see. Our 2 year old son loved it. Probably best for kids under 10 years old. Even great for little ones just learning to walk, but when we went it was very crowed. Unfortunately, there were so many people, it almost made it... More

Our 3 yr old spent the major part of the visit in the "Dora" section! The place is extremely interactive and there is something to do for everyone. This place also has a subway where you can grab something quick and they have several events for kids (music party, arts, string beads, interactive exhibits) Be sure to go!

Went with a 2 & 4 year old. Everything is very poorly taken care off,and the whole place is hardly more than a playground, and a poor one at that. My kids have a better time at a "free" park than here. From ripped and over worn showcase item such as hospital bed to over 80% of the exhibits to... More

We have hit Children's Museums all over and for a big city it is a little disappointing. Very, very small in size and as other posters have said, geared towards the younger children. A good portion of it is the typical "mini world" of a bank, grocery store, vet's office, fire station, etc. Location is pretty isolated and hard to... More

I've taken my little sister here twice. Its great for toddlers/elementary school kids to play. Each section is a scaled down model of real places such as Publix, Bank of America, Port of Miami, and a few weeks other places. There's also shows scheduled throughout the day, different arts & crafts activities taking place in different classrooms, a. Gift Shop,... More

Reviews are right.....go if you don't have much plans because it's basically a children's playground. Very fun for parents with littles ones because it's entertaining for them. Everything in first sight is nice and looks good but when you get real close, all the activities and things to play with are old and broken. I don't see much educational value... More

I agree with other posts that say it's mostly for very little children. In addition there's a lot of broken games, missing pieces, lost parts... you can't really enjoy the attractions at their best even if there's few people at the time. For example if you go to the doctor's office area, there's a worn out white robe for the... More

To call the Miami Children's Museum a "Museum" would be inaccurate. It is more like an indoor playground. You are warned in the title that it is a museum for children, but the most of the exhibits are geared toward VERY young children: infants-kindergartners at the oldest. The only parking is in a small metered lot. Basically you have to... More

This is a very didactic place for Children. I was here with my 18 months baby boy. It is very important that you interact together with your baby so he can get the best of it. You have to check the activities available on the day you are going. Practically you and your baby are by yourself , there is... More

Many were not operational, missing paper on all stations that require it. It seems kind of abandoned with some many attractions not working properly. Most of them are for really young kids. Not worth the money.
