There are lits of hands on activities for the kids to do. I love the learning exhibits ie:banking, grocery shopping, safety... She loved the art and music and the playground of course! Looking...

Extraordinary , just lately the items are not replaced and are very used, needs an upgrade on some of the play/real things. Other than that they can't get tired and have outdoors and indoors things to do. Craft and reading time is one of their favorites.

The museum is great, the kids absolutely love the various activities and centers. We purchase the annual pass because we go there so frequently, sometimes just for an hour other times for 1/2 a day. There is plenty to keep the kids entertained and as an adult I will admit that it is NOT one of those places that I... More

Great place to visit on a rainy day in August. That said I do think it is overpriced for both adults and children ( there is no differentiation - it's all one price and for a family of 5 that'll set you back 90+ dollars ). We have a 3 yo who likes to run around - and he loved... More

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.
