It's a perfect place to stay with your children, I spent there almost a full day, and for my old one we needed return other days, but in a family travel we decided to visit other places. The "museum" is a huge playground segmented by ordinary life situation, you can find the Bank (where you will find all things related... More

My 3 year old LOVES this place!!! and so do I - we learn so much and no matter how many times we go, there's always something new, something amazing, something fun going on! ONLY THING I CAN'T STAND: The outdoor playground is run down, things are broken, paint is peeling, it really is an eye sore in an otherwise... More

It's great for small children like mine. They had a really great time playing there. We'd been to Chicago kids museum and it's much better. Even tough they had a lot of fun in the Miami Children's Museum. If you care for good food plan your meal out of there. Only high fat pizza and similar.

The "love of reading" exhibit is currently on display. My son really enjoyed it as some of his favourite books were featured there. The museum is very very small and is very expensive. There is only a subway restaurant to eat, no generic cafeteria, so take your own food if you don't want subway sandwiches. My son enjoyed the museum... More

The building itself is very old and run down. Their is only one tiny venue for lunch, with not enough seating. The Subway Restaurant was very dirty, looks like it has not been cleaned all day. The museum was very loud. There was no order to anything and no one there understood how to take turns. Not sure what it... More

Thanks to Target for having a free admission day, even the meter parking was free which all together saved us significant moolah! (Doesn't make up for leaking my credit info though Target!) I think we would have been satisfied even if we did pay however. Plenty of open space for kids to run around and not fight over exhibits. Easily... More

Great place to entertain a young boy or girl, 6-year old or under, but don't take your 10 year old or so there. They'll get bored. Having said that, there are a number of events like Dr. Seus week, which are worth taking the kids to. My young daughter keeps good memories from MCM.

This was our first visit to the museum. We travel to Miami often and were looking for something different to do. The museum looked old and a bit worn out. A few of the exhibits were closed or not working/missing parts to fully enjoy them. Overall, the kids had a nice time and I guess that's all that counts.

We were invited to a birthday party at the museum. I read some of the reviews here before going because my son is not even 2 years old. I have to agree with the people who said that the place needs to be updated. The staff was not rude but they don't seemed professional or customer service oriented. I was... More
