“good idea, but destroyed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The idea of childrens museum is very good, but the toys inside are destroyed or incomplete because there is nobody to supervise the childrens. Young children are with parents but teens do what they want... So when the museum was new, it has to be very nice, with many good ideas.

“Xmas 2012 Miami trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

great for kids. Spent the day and the kids (6 & 3) loved trying the different areas. Over xmas they also had the Grinch play on and it was really fun - definitely recommend visiting if you have young kids with curious minds.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This museum needs to get newer and more engaging, exciting and hands on exhibits. Expected more. Besides the fire truck, my kids really didn't care for it too much. In the past we visited the Boston childrens museum and I could barely take them out of there, so much more, cooler stuff to do.

“Wow I didnt expect that”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The place just took me for surprise. I went there with my kids to spend an hour with them expecting to find a couple of boring exhibits that the kids will play with and then getting out of there. When we got in we saw seval spectacular setting with plenty of games for the kids. We stayed for three hours and my kids didnt want to leave. I highly recommend this place for your kids from 3 to 8 they will have a blast. If you think you will be in Miami for a long time I reccomend you to buy tha annual pass since it is cheaper than paying for two days.
