I recently took my seven year old niece to visit the museum. It has a great location, many wonderful exhibits and could have been a great day of fun and learning. Unfortunately, the majority of the children ran wild with no supervision, were pushing and grabbing things from the younger children, pieces from each areas exhibit were strewn about the... More

We really enjoyed this place it was very big and had lots of activities for my kids to enjoy. Why can't give it a 5 is because it is not very well staffed. A lot of kids run free no one to organize cutting in lines. There was a group of kids there from some type of youth camp. There... More

My initial assessment of this museum was that it was mainly for the 3-5 year old crowd. But , my 7 yr old Grandson found many areas that he really loved! The Publix supermarket pretend section was a big hit with the kids who were able to shop using a cart and then do the checkout procedure and bagging. There... More

Our nine year old grand daughter had a fantastic time there. We were initially concerned that she would be bored because of the suggested age through 10 years old. That was not the case. There are all sorts of interactive exhibits which she thoroughly enjoyed: from being a dentist to working at the grocery store. Lots of kids were there... More

I think a lil pricy but there are discount tickets out there.. My main concern is cleaning..I really hope they wipe everything down... More

We took our visiting grandchildren, and thankfully we had discounted tickets! If I had had to pay full price I would have been upset, as it was,m I was still upset, but the reduced price tempered some of it. Many of the "hands on" exhibits did not work, and those that did operated sporadically. A couple of the "attractions" were... More

My husband and I took our three grandchildren to this museum several days ago. I had read many good things about it and felt we might be discovering another of Tampas treasures...Well, it was total chaos the entire time we were there. Children of all ages were running every which way. Where were the parents you might ask...well, many of... More

This place is not worth the money. The exhibits are crappy, most don't work, kids run around with no respect for others, And there is no one there to keep order or clean the toys after each child uses them. Will not be going back.

This is one of the newer children museums I have visited. I think it is newly built so the fixtures are comparatively cleaner newer and more contemporary. Though not a very large one but I see quality an thoughtfulness there. Parents with small children should also enjoy the exhibits.

This place has so much for your kids to do! Plan to stay for several hours! It is a unique, educational, play experience. My 7 year old did not want to leave! Especially entertaining for ages 8 and under, but my 10 year old kept busy with few complaints. We will definitely go back!
