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.

It was great, my kids had fun, but too many people, in a place like this, kids like to explore, and run and it was a little bit uncomfortable, but the place is really cute and kids love it.

We took out twin 23 month old boys to the Miami Children's Museum on a rainy day during our Miami vacation. There is plenty of place for children to run around, but the exhibits are certainly sponsored by big corporations and are not as interactive as other children's museums we have been to. The Minnesota Children's Museum and the Chattanooga... More

The museum is located right over the bridge leading into Miami Beach. I would recommend this museum if you have small children. In addition, the museum is free I believe every third Friday. The museum has two small play yards, a shop, and a sandwich shop inside. The permanent exhibits include: a supermarket shop, dentist office, emergency room, exercise bikes,... More

Visiting this "childrens museum" is like going to a mall. All the exhibits are focused around shopping and corporate services. Its a great place to raise a consumer child. Im sure they do their best to maintain the organization; however, the focus is off of children and on sponsor brands.

This Museum is located on water. It has great parking and the hours are great as well. There is so much to do and learn. My daughter is 6 and she is a very curious 6 year old. She was blown away by all the neat things there. They have lots of things that children could play with. They have... More
