“very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place made a very run down impression, all rather unimaginative and many of the displays and interactive features were not working. Definitely not worth a return visit. And highly suggest not to go on the free day (last Friday of the month?), when we were there it was filled with noisy poorly supervised kids.

“Imagination Gone Wild”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The museum gives little folks the opportunity to "be" firemen, doctors, store clerks, etc. Children love dressing up and acting out their dream jobs. Parents love watching their children having the time of their lives.

“Fun for kids and inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I know some of the things here look old or used, but still, my kids love to visit this museum, my daughter specially loves the "mini" Publix (grocery store), where she can pretend to be in the market and fill out her "mini" cart or pretend to be the cashier. My son loves this museum also, his favorite part it's the one with the oranges on the market. We will continue to visit this museum whenever we can, it is fun and it is also cheap.
